I remember Career Day from when I went to school at Deerfield Elementary. So when I got the chance to go and talk about pro surfing as a career, there was no chance I was going to miss it!
I showed up and there was everyone there from firefighters to nurses to chefs. I had the 3rd grade class and not to say i was the hit of career day, but let's just say, free Hurley stickers get kids pretty amped! I showed my section in The Pursuit (muted the part where Aaron drops the "S" bomb), then answered all the kids' questions. Most of them were, "Have you ever seen a shark?"
Living in South Africa for awhile, I had some good stories, but I decided to tone them down to make sure the kids wouldn't be too scared to hit up the Island Water Sports, Free Surf Lessons the following day. All in all it was a fun day, and we could have the whole class of 2018 attempting to make it as a professional surfer. — Cheyne
