This is a beautiful story of a Liberian boy named Alfred Lomax who, at the height of Liberia’s civil war, stole a boogie board from a food container as he fled for safety. He returned home to a war-torn country and discovered a love of riding waves and sharing them with his loved ones. Since his return and a surf session with Californian surfer Nicholai Lidow, Alfred has gained more passion and love for surfing and even upgraded his equipment to a surfboard. He has become an inspiration of some sorts in the still recuperating country of Liberia.
For me, our beaches have always been a source of personal inspiration!
