Meet Rex, a 7th grader from Laguna Beach, CA.
The one word that best describes Rex's life today is "Shredding."
If Rex could change one thing in the world, he would "Put an end to racism." The way he would go about making this change is to accept everyone for who they are.
One year from today, Rex would like to be sponsored for surfing, skating or skimming.
If Rex's life were a movie it would be all about shredding on his many surfboards, shredding on his skateboard "sliding" down the hills of Laguna Beach and skimming (he recently won a skim contest). I think he is on his way to being sponsored. The title of his movie would be called "Shred 4 Life."
I saw Rex "shredding" today on his blue sponge surfboard. He was getting all the set waves at Brooks, Oak St. and Honey Buns. Every time I looked up, there he was in the perfect position on the peak!
I have no doubt Rex will see his dream come true this next year and become sponsored. As a former surfwear company owner who sponsored surfers and body boarders, I offered a little advice to young Rex, "You can have all the talent in the world, but if your attitude stinks, most companies will not want you on their team."
Rex's dad Ray (Day 120) shared with me that Rex is a straight A student and works hard. When I was sponsoring up and coming talent, Rex is the kind of kid I was looking for.
Continue to shred Rex and hold onto your good attitude, it will take you places you can only dream of going!
