Quincy Symonds was four years old when she saw her dad leaving the house early in the morning to go surfing. She wasn’t happy that he’d left her to go do something fun, so she insisted he bring her the next time he went out. He did, and now, two years later, she surfs like a pro.
Seriously: like a pro. Her coach says she’s one of the best six-year-old surfers and skateboarders in the world. Quincy has had a lot of health problems in her short time on Earth, but she’s still managed to become an incredibly enthusiastic and talented kid.
Her parents would be happy with her pursuing an eventual career in surfing or skateboarding, but they have an amazing approach to it: They just want her to do what makes her happy.
