I love surfing! It's my true passion. I can't believe I made it to the championships.
REFUSAL OF THE CALL
I'll miss you!
I don't know if I should go. I will miss you.
I'm so excited that I changed my mind. I can't believe I'm in Hawaii.
BY KASELEIGH MCCARLEY
Hailley started surfing at ten years old, and now she is sixteen. After many years of practice, Hailey is now the best surfer in Florida. Because of her high rankings, Hailey got invited to the championships in Hawaii.
ROAD OF TRIALS
After telling her parents about the exciting news, Hailey convinced herself into not taking the spot. She was concerned about money and more importantly, leaving her family.
ROAD OF TRIALS
Oh no! I'm falling behind.
I'm in first place, and the competition just started. I'm so awesome.
After a long dispute, Hailey's parents believed that taking this opportunity would be the right thing to do. After confirming her spot, Hailey sets out for Hawaii and new opportunities. Little does she know that Ava, her biggest compitition, lives next door.
Cowabunga my dudes. Surfs up!
Today is competition day, and Hailey has arrived at the beach. She is ready to put foward everything shes learned and practiced over the course of six years. While standing in line for the competition's check-in, Hailey becomes apprehensive because the odds of winning are slim.
Wow! There's a lot of people here.
The competition has begun, and all surfers are currently in the water. The other surfers are amazingly talented. Therefore, Hailey is falling behind. At the time, it was almost if the butterflies in her stomach were attacking her inside and out. Due to being so nervous, Hailey felt as if she had never surfed before.
