Recently I read that a local teen in my area named Micha Cantor, was a Junior Pro surfer for Team USA. At only 15 years old, Micha just returned from competing in Portugal, where they won fifth place internationally. Micha has been surfing since around age five, with his father. His dad quickly saw that he had a love for the sport and his parents have nurtured his passion.

“It takes a lot to qualify for the International World’s Surfing competition, starting with participating in this organization called, “Prime,” and you qualify for USA championships through that program, and then go surf at USA championships and then from there, they pick six surfers for each age division and they picked me this last year,” Micha says. Source

Homeschool is their choice when it comes to his education. As the pull of the sport is time-consuming, this allows him to work around his schedule and pursue his dreams. Of course, as a homeschooling parent myself this is exciting and great to read! I love the doors that homeschool opens because of the ability for your child to fit [it] into their journey, verses working everything else around a long day of traditional school.

Micha’s dream is to be chosen for the 2020 Olympic team. This will be the first time in history that surfing will be part of the Olympic games. Source/Photo
