Image: HIV or AIDS, the virus we are here to tackle.

As I sit here and write all that comes to mind is the smile I created on a child`s face today after they caught their very first wave.

Here in the ocean, smiling is a spontaneous reaction that seems to affect everyone and can be transferred faster than HIV or AIDS, the virus we are here to tackle.

We can break the stigma that says surfing is for guys.   Read More...
