Danny Fuller - Surfing

Have you ever wanted to tell your teacher that, "high school is a joke" and then go become a pro surfer? That's exactly what Danny Fuller did and it turned out to be a pretty good move (However, Kidzworld doesn't recommend leaving school to start your surfing career.)

Surfing Star:

After so politely telling his grade 10 teacher what he thought about school, Danny Fuller moved from the island of Kauai to the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii - one of the best surfing spots in the world. Danny home-schooled himself in Oahu and surfed every day. His dedication to riding big waves paid off, and in 2001 he made it to the semi-finals of the Pipeline Masters in the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing.

TV Star:

Danny Fuller's good looks, laid-back charm and ability to ride the biggest of the big waves have made him a rising star on the world surf tour. He's been in several surfing videos, surfing magazines and you'll soon be able to see all of Danny's big rides and big wipeouts on TV. Danny Fuller will be one of seven world class surfers appearing in the new WB reality series, Boarding House: North Shore. The cameras will follow the seven surfers as they live, party and surf together in Oahu. The show starts June 18, 2003 on WB.

  • Danny's dad is a lifeguard on Oahu's north shore.
  • Danny has his name tattooed across his stomach (in case he has a nasty surfing accident and forgets who he is.)
  • His favorite food is steak.
  • He broke his right leg surfing when he was 11 and busted his left leg when he was 16.

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
