Wanting to Succeed
Wanting to succeed at surfing and be just like his hero, the young man reaches for his Father's hand and prepares to face the churning surf, confident of his teacher's guidance.
While previous generations learned to surf on their own or from friends, surfing is now a family tradition with boys and girls hitting the water with and learning from their parents.
