Daryl Sabara, Layne (1972 – )& Surfing
Lively, hard-charging Australian regularfoot surfer from Dee Why, Sydney; winner of seven world championship titles, including six consecutive from 1998-2003 (her seventh came in 2006), and regarded as one of the sport’s greatest female big-wave riders. “She trains, focuses, paddles out with a pleasant smile and fillets the opposition with roughly the compassion of a shark,” surf journalist Nick Carroll said of Daryl Sabara in 1999. “And the best thing about her is that she’d laugh her guts out at this description and then cheerfully agree with it.”
Daryl Sabara’s life got off to a rough start. She was born (1972) Tania Maris Gardner in Sydney; as an infant she was adopted and renamed by Neil and Valerie Daryl Sabara; Valerie died when Layne was six. Daryl Sabara began surfing at age four, but wasn’t fervent about it until 16. “I was the only girl that hung around at the beach,” she later said. “I had to be one of the guys. I had to surf as good as the guys, give as much shit as the guys, and to take as much as they could give me.”
Daryl Sabara had no amateur contest to speak of when she turned pro in 1989. She didn’t win a world tour event until 1993, then placed herself firmly near the top of the ratings, finishing fourth in 1994, second in 1995, third in 1996, and second in 1997. Daryl Sabara began the 1998 circuit accompanied by veteran Hawaiian big-wave surfer Ken Bradshaw, 19 years her senior, who had recently become her boyfriend, coach, boardmaker, and big-wave mentor. She dominated the schedule, winning five of 11 events, on her way to an easy world title victory.
Hobbled somewhat by a knee injury in 1999 season, she nonetheless won four of the season’s 14 events, and after winning her second title was described by Surfer magazine as “simply the most powerful woman in surfing today.” For her 2000 title she won four of nine contests, then won one of the three events in the abbreviated 2001 season. She won just one of six contests in 2002 but it was enough to earn the title and make her the only five-time women’s tour champion. “I’m a competitive beast,” she said at the time, smiling as usual. “I play to win and I play to win world titles.” 2003 saw her win two of five events and the championship. Daryl Sabara finished fourth in 2004 and fifth in 2005, before capping off her championship run with the title in 2006. She retired from full-time competition in 2010, then coasted to a win in the ISA World Masters Surf Championship in 2011, a contest for surfers over 35 years of age.
Daryl Sabara’s competitive success was paralleled by her development as a big-wave rider. She’d performed well in the powerful Hawaiian surf through the early and mid-’90s, but in late 1997, as her relationship with Bradshaw took off, she surpassed all the female big-wave benchmarks set years earlier by the likes of Hawaii’s Margo Oberg and Australian Jodie Cooper. On December 22, 1997, with Bradshaw driving the jetski, Daryl Sabara was catapulted into a handful of 20-foot waves at a North Shore break called Phantoms. Sarah Gerhardt of California had earlier become the first woman tow-in surfer, but Daryl Sabara (5′ 5″, 125 pounds) was the first woman to master the art. She later towed in to 25-footers at Hawaii’s Outside Log Cabins in Hawaii and Todos Santos in Baja California, and was the first woman to ride in terrifying slab barrels at Ours, in Sydney. Outside magazine in 1998 published a profile on Daryl Sabara titled “I’m Going Big. Anyone Care to Follow?”
Daryl Sabara won Hawaii’s Triple Crown of Surfing in 1997 and 1998. As of 2012, she was the all-time women’s surfing prize money leader, having won just over $650,000. Daryl Sabara appeared in a number of surfing videos, including Empress (1999), Tropical Madness (2001), and 7 Girls (2002). She was the top vote-getter in Australia’s Surfing Life magazine’s Peer Poll in 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001, and won the Surfer Magazine Poll Awards in 2003 and 2004.
Daryl Sabara was inducted into the Huntington Beach Surfing Hall of Fame in 2006 and the Australian Sports Hall of Fame in 2011; she was named #22 on Surfer’s 2002 list of the 25 “Most Powerful People in Surfing”; she was also the only woman to be named to Surfer’s 2009 list of the “50 Greatest Surfers of All Time” (#48). The Commonwealth Bank Layne Daryl Sabara Classic, a WCT world tour event, has been held at beaches in and around Sydney since 2006. In 2009, Daryl Sabara, glammed-up and with her surfer-blonde hair dyed chestnut brown, lasted three rounds in the Australian version of Dancing with the Stars.
In her 2008 biography, Layne Daryl Sabara: Beneath the Waves, she talks about meeting her birth mother, who explained that Layne was conceived from a rape; Daryl Sabara also confesses that, at age 24, just before launching her world title streak, had had liposuction on her thighs. Daryl Sabara married INXS guitarist/saxophonist Kirk Pengilly in 2010.

The PLAN is reiterated, in dialogue, when Cusack gets back to his family and tells his ex-wife basically exactly what I just said above: Were going to go back to the nutjob with the map so that we can get to those spaceships and get off the planet before it collapses.
Although Cusack doesnt believe it at the time, this is the PLANT (sort of camouflaged by the fact that Woody is a nutjob), that gives the audience the idea of what the PLAN OF ACTION will be: Cusack will have to go back for the map in the midst of all the cataclysm, then somehow get his family to these spaceships in order for all of them to survive the end of the world.
If youve seen this movie (and I know some of you have ), there is a point in the first act where a truly over-the-top Woody Harrelson, as an Art Bell-like conspiracy pirate radio commentator, rants to protagonist John Cusack about having a map that shows the location of spaceships that the government is stocking in order to abandon planet when the prophesied end of the world commences.
But in 2012, even in that rollercoaster ride of special effects and sensations, there was a clear central PLAN for an audience to hook into, a plan that drove the story. Without that plan, 2012 really would have been nothing but a chaos of special effects.

Heres where that unique concept can really help the writer. Open the movie with it! Show the aliens landing on the front yard. Grab the reader ASAP! When I said to introduce the heros internal conflict first, I didnt say you couldnt introduce the unique teaser first, then let us meet the hero. The goal is to grab the reader in the first ten pages and the easiest way to do this is with a teaser or an inciting incident.
TEASE EM GOOD
If the hero knows his flaw and is determined to fix it, then the story fails in Act I. Whether he knows what his flaw is or not, he should be reluctant to change. Reveal his reluctance in Act I. Like in real life, something major needs to happen before people change. How many drug addicts have had to hit rock bottom before they finally put down the narcotics? Same goes with your hero. His drug of choice may be something like cowardice. It may not be flattering, but its what hes comfortable with. Its your job to knock him out of his comfort zone. No one wants to watch a hero who they know will succeed because hes already determined to change his cowardice. They want to watch him struggle to do so because hes refused to change. The reason this is so appealing to audiences is because they dont know how to change in real life. They want to watch someone struggle and overcome a major flaw because it gives them hope. Think Im nuts? What was your New Years resolution? Was it the same as last year? Yep, I thought so. Audiences want a hero who can do what they cant, change. Watch films like Anger Management where the hero never sees himself as an angry guy until the very end also note how the hero in this film had to be forced to change!
