Wanting to Succeed
Wanting to succeed at surfing and be just like their hero, the child reaches for their father's hand and prepares to face the churning surf, confident of their teacher's guidance.
While previous generations learned to surf on their own or from friends, surfing is now a family tradition as boys and girls hit the water and get lessons from their parents.
