They say kids these days spend too much time in front of the television playing or playing video games on the computer. However one child has racked up more hours in the sun in 4 short years than most of us do in 20.
That’s because she’s spent her short life out on the water catching waves and riding the surf. 4-year-old Aviana Zizi is a pint-sized surfer who went viral when the video of her first big wave went viral. Now she’s riding the wave of virality, as her video trends across the World Wide Web.
“It was fun because I like going in the water,” she said stating the obvious, as kids do so well.
“Very proud papa,” said her father, Mark Zizi. “She’s riding the wave and laughing the whole time, and I’m laughing as I’m chasing her”
The talented tot has been surfing with her father, who is a Los Angeles City firefighter, since she was 2 years old – riding along with him as he taught her how to hang ten.
“I’d put her on the front of the board, paddling out with her, going slow then she’d get really excited and was hooked right away, basically,” he said.
Aviana has been practicing her moves in the family’s swimming pool, manuevering her board and standing up in shallower waters.
“I just have such a love for the ocean and decided to share it with her, and she found her own joy in it and wanted to get out there without me even asking her to do it,” her proud father told local news.
She looks like a seasoned pro and she’s only 4-years-old. We have high hopes for this little girl. If you think this impressive girl is a real rock star, then please SHARE with friends and family!
