How is she ever going to make friends in a place full of new people? She had heard that everyone in Durban was unfriendly to new comers. She feels lonely and like an outsider (inkom’ edla yodwa) until she
is invited to try surfing…
Eventually she learns that it’s ok to be different, you are never going to be accepted by everyone and most importantly being yourself is all you need to do!
