1Hey Coach,
I'm a 7th grader and I live in Michigan - not anywhere near an ocean. But ever since I was little - maybe 1st grade - I've ALWAYS wanted to move to Hawaii, and surf! How can I convince my mom to move to Hawaii? I want to learn how to surf and move to Hawaii more than anything else in the world! Please help me!

Hey Surfer44,
That's a pretty tough assignment. Convincing your mom to move to Hawaii so you can learn how to surf won't be an easy task. You'd probably have better luck convincing her to move to downtown Detroit so you can learn to rap like Eminem. But I've come up with a couple of suggestions that may have you going to school at Waikiki Junior High by next winter:

The Plan
1.Tell your mom that if you move to Hawaii and learn to surf, you'll be able to become a pro surfer like Kelly Slater and make millions of dollars a year. Tell her that you'll give her half of your pro surfing pay checks so she can take an early retirement.
2.Try convincing your mom that you have one of those rare, incurable diseases that makes it necessary for you to live in a warm climate with lots of sunlight (This will require some pretty good acting on your part but if you can forge a doctor's note, this just might work.)

You Don't Have To Move
If none of the above ideas work, you can always try taking surfing lessons somewhere closer to Michigan. There are several good surfing spots on the east coast of the United States such as North Carolina, Maryland and Maine. The surf might not be as sweet as Hawaii, but it certainly beats trying to ride a surfboard on a highway in Michigan. Your mom will also be more likely to take you to surf camp at one of these Atlantic Coast spots for a week than pack up and move to Hawaii. Good luck and hang ten!

Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.

    A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

    Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
