Yesterday we watched a surfing contest out in Wainaie, Oahu - it was amazing to see! I'd never seen surfing at all, and was really impressed with how easy they all made it seem!! There are some great shots from the event which I'll link to shortly, but first, I wanted to ask you all to pls help me tofind this man and this little girl! I don't think they were part of the contest - rather, I think he was teaching the little girl how to surf. We watched them take on wave after wave for over an hour, and the little girl was incredible!
Check out the look on her face in the shot below - nothing but sheer determination!! I didn't notice til we got back home that the man (perhaps her father?) had a GoPro Camera in his mouth - maybe he was shooting video from his perspective as they went? Not sure, but either way, I'd sure love to find them to get a copy of this shot to them!! Maybe the little girl might also like to have it one day when she grows up - especially if that is her dad or another family member in the shot?
So I'm asking everyone to pls help me find them! Like this, and share it to your social media pages! If enough people see and share it, maybe we can find out who I can send this to? If you know who this is pls have them contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
UPDATE MARCH 3, 2014 - THROUGH THE POWER OF SOCIAL MEDIA, THIS INCREDIBLE FATHER DAUGHTER SURFING DUO HAS BEEN FOUND!! I RECEIVED AN EMAIL FROM THE MAN IN THE PHOTO AND WAS ABLE TO VERIFY THAT IT WAS INDEED HIM BY HAVING HIM SEND ME SHOTS TAKEN FROM HIS PERSPECTIVE VIA HIS GOPRO! I AM SUPER HAPPY TO REPORT THAT I WAS ABLE TO SEND HIM A HIGH RESOLUTION COPY OF THIS PHOTO ALONG WITH A PRINT RELEASE SO HE CAN HAVE IT PRINTED AS HE WISHES! SPECIAL THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO HELPED ME TO FIND HIM!!
