Welcome to the Young Surfers Championship! One of our judges is with me right now – Mr. Scott Wailani!
Many young people are hoping to achieve their dreams today. You’re certainly an inspiration to them.
I understand how they feel. I’ve surfed since I was a kid. And this was the first competition I participated in.
And you won first place, didn’t you?
Yes. After that, I decided to be a pro surfer. So, this A competition is very meaningful to me.
Do you have any message for our contestants?
Go grab those waves!
