Colin Chandler

Col Chandler is a surfer, artist, entrepreneur and energetic MS Queensland Ambassador.

Also known as Colphin*, he lives with primary progressive MS and Crohns Disease.  Now 60 years young, Col has been living with Crohns for 44 of those years and MS for about 10.

 

Life doesn’t stop for MS

Col is a fanatical surfer and artist doing both activities for 45 years.  Col’s art is all about the surf.

When Col received his MS diagnosis he thought that he wouldn’t surf again, but surfing was non-negotiable for Col.  No one had said he couldn’t surf.  He just couldn’t stand up.

Col will entrance you with his stories of how through hard work, he has built start-up companies across the world and how he keeps moving forward through exercise and meditation and focusing on new adventures – like having some of his art featured as a back drop to the Beach Boys 2016 World Tour.

*The nick name Colphin was given to Col by his mates because every time he would paddle out for a surf he ended up in the middle of a pod of Dolphins.)
