I am Esai, an American surfer, based in Espinho, Portugal. I am 9 years old and just started competing in Surfing in 2019. I have been training super hard, both in and out of the water. My first competition was in Aveiro in June 2019.
I am currently also working on getting involved in building a platform to make an impact in helping the oceans. I am trying to be a youth ambassador for organizations such as 4 Ocean, I am also a proud member of the Team Riders surfing team in Espinho, Portugal and Baixhinos Anta soccer academy.
My long-term athletic dream is to qualify and compete at the World Junior Surfing tournament in California. In the short term, however, I hope to compete at the National level tournament in Portugal and the European level tournament.
I love learning about animals, especially reptiles and marine species, I like to bake cookies and muffins and sell them to also help to cover my training costs, and being a full-time athlete, I am always really busy. Your contribution would allow me to focus more of my time on training, allowing me to reach my goals, both on and off of the water.
