As a mom (or dad) who surfs, most of us dream of being able to share our love of the ocean and riding waves with our kids.
A friend, Silvia Yom, who just happens to be an amazing photographer was visiting and snapped these pics of my kids and I in our element.

She’s 3.5 and got excited. After 18 month old Soleo watched his sister ride a wave, he was eager to get one too.
