“We all take pride in having our own styles and try to encourage each other to own their individual way of surfing. It really makes up a community of surfers where everyone’s always trying to motivate each other. Obviously, you’re going to have a little bit of competitiveness growing up surfing with your friends, but at the same time, if somebody does something sick, everybody’s cheering for them and rooting them on. It really helped us build friendships and build love for surfing and our community. I think you get closer because of things like that.” – Shama Beckford
