Hunter's Wish to Learn To Surf

Wish Kid photo

Hunter is a four year old boy who loves the beach and the pool. He has always watched his older siblings surf, but did not know how to surf himself. When given the choice to have a wish, Hunter new immediately that he wanted to learn how to surf in California like his family.  

Hunter, his mom and dad, brother and two sisters were taken to the airport in a limo where they soon departed for Santa Barbara. Once settled in, they enjoyed the sites of California as they eagerly awaited Hunter’s first surf lesson!

The following morning Hunter took his first lesson at Mondos Beach, where he met his surf instructor. During his trip he took two surf lessons and was able to stand up on his surfboard multiple times. His smile never left his face and anyone could tell that he was having a blast. Hunter also got to go on a guided kayak tour and a private sunset cruise in Santa Barbara.

Hunter and his family had a wish trip of a lifetime and look forward to coming home and testing out his new surfing skills on the beaches in Florida.
