Family connection forged in the waves

For Scott Heron, the only thing better than catching a wave was watching his daughter catch her own. “Surfing is absolutely exhilarating. That excitement and rush as you catch a wave. It lifts you up and you almost feel a sense of weightlessness as you speed down the wave,” he says. “The only feeling that matches it was being able to … see my daughter stand up and catch her first wave.”
