Hello! My name is Dorothy and I love to surf. I live on top of the hill above me. My parents work at the college , UC Long Beach. My mom is tennis coach and my Dad runs all of the sports their. We are a pretty athletic family. I doing my morning surf. Ouch! I just stepped on bottle and there is a note in it!
The bottle reads " You have been chosen to surf in the Long Beach State Surf Finals. If you do not do this you will not be accepted into UC Long Beach. You may not talk to anyone about this and you must star this journey right now. Go to the cafe on Main Street. Sincerely, Mom and Dad " What is happening? There is no way that I am doing this. But I have to go to the cafe corner I guess.
Oh there is another bottle! this one reads go to the Surf Final you've been there before do your famous trick that nobody had completed before. Make sure to do your best because if you don't you won't pass the test. If you don't do this then you and your family will no longer be apart of the UC Long Beach Family Staff.
Hey Tess, I have to make this quick because I can't talk to anyone about this. So, if there is something that I really don't want to do but it might hurt two people I care about so much, do I do it?
That is a decision you have to make for yourself , but if those two very important people had to make the decision for you, what would you want them to choose?
I am going to do it. I am going to participate in the Surf Final so I can get a scholarship at UC Long Beach and help mom and dad keep there job too. I know doing this trick is risky because I have only completed it once, but I have to do it. The sky is also looking dark I hope there is not a storm coming.
Well, I did it. I did my 360 and my parents still have there jobs. I also kept my scholarship and I won the scholarship. It took my 4 tries to get my 360 so I did not place first, I also did not want to leave the wave I was riding. I finally fell which meant I had to leave.
