"Thanks again for Ava's awesome lesson. Really - you took a little girl who isn't very athletic and has asthma - and (in her mind) let her become Bethany Hamilton for a moment. It meant so much to her and to me. She has been watching the video clips over and over again and just beams every time.
Here is a link to the 'big' moment! Your reaction is also awesome! I can tell how much you love the sport and sharing it with others.
You'll definitely be seeing us again!"
