My youngest daughter knows the value of a promise – and of taking her time to learn something new like surfing.
I love to surf. My kids are getting into it and my wife has had a go. Hey, watch out for a picture of us one day in Surfer Magazine.

You can watch surf videos to get all psyched up, but at the end of the day you’ve just got to go for it. And that’s the best part.

I took my eldest daughter surfing on her own board for the first time, and she started to catch the dream of searching for waves around the world.
