Enrique Mendez How is it surfer readers!

My name is Enrique, I used to Bodyboard and ride my surfboard in Puerto Rico for many years. Also had the experience to live in Hawaii for many months, there I judged and rode my bodyboard. Now I am living in central Florida.
I wanted to let you know that I wrote a young adult novel in wish the main characters are all bodyboarders. I am thinking it is the first of its kind.
This is a great list !
Hope you visit my author page and check it out.
The Emerald Mystery
Best of wishes Enrique!
