Student favourite Daniel Mason, known for his starring role in last year’s “Charlie & the Chocolate Factory” makes his TV debut this week, on Friday February 8th.
Last June, Daniel headed off to sunny Hawaii to participate in RTE’s “Big Wave Boot Camp”. Daniel, who is no stranger to surfing, has won many competitions in the past, including the Ripcurl Gromsearch 2010 and the Garretstown Board Masters 2010.
But in Hawaii, Daniel faced his toughest challenge yet. He joined seven other sixteen year olds in an intense, month long training course with surfing legend Ken Bradshaw.
“It was an amazing experience” said Daniel, “Hawaii was beautiful, but the workload was tough. We spent hours training a day in the hot sun – but it was great fun”.
Throughout the process, a TV crew followed Daniel’s progress. “It was a pass of fail system, five passed and two failed, but you’ll have to tune in to see how I get on!!!”
No doubt all of Douglas will be eager to see how our very own “surfing legend” gets on…. At least this time he won’t be wearing a dress!!!!!
