The Samoan Surfer in Tahiti

Join us in support of Liam Wilson, the Samoan Surfer in his Pursuit of Olympic Gold during the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo Japan

In July 2019, Liam Wilson, the son of one our partners was approached by the Samoa Surfing Association to represent American Samoa for the 2020 Olympics. First on the list for Liam was to be accepted by the International Surfing Association (ISA), which is the platform for the 2020 Olympic Surfing competition. As a current ISA member, Liam will qualify for the Olympic games by competing in two ISA competitions. The first competition is the 2019 World Surfing Games in Miyazaki, Japan on September 7-15, 2019. In addition to the World Surfing Games, Liam will need to compete in another ISA competition in the new year. Location to be determined!  In November 2019, Liam will also compete in the Oceana Games located in Fiji to vie for a position on the Oceana Olympic Surf Team. 

In September, Samoa’s National Olympic Committee (NOC) will meet to accept Liam as an official member of the team. Funding from the NOC will not be made available until after the official acceptance in September. Hence, Liam is working hard to fund coaching, travel expenses to Japan, room/board, and food. The determined athlete that he is, Liam has worked teaching surf lessons and as a cook, at a local restaurant all while attending Kamehameha Schools in Honolulu.
