Windsurfing is a water sport that combines two activities, surfing and sailing. It consists of a board 6-8 feet long, with a sail attached, and is powered by wind. Windsurfing only became a recreational activity in the 1960s, but history tells us the Polynesian people would make day trips over the ocean standing upright on a solid board with a vertical sail.
Grace & Zowie tried it out on Jericho Beach with Windsure Adventure Watersports!
Finally some wind!
Good to practice on land first...
Zowie getting that hang of it!
Did you know the first recorded performance by an actor dates all the way back to 534 BC? It all started with Thespis, a Greek performer who is said to be the first person to ever appear on stage as a character in a play. It took place at the Theatre of Dionysus in Athens, Greece. The remains of this theatre are still there today, at the foot of the Athenian Acropolis. Thanks to Thespis, actors are also known as ‘thespians’.
Zowie & Grace chatted about acting and all sorts of other stuff in beautiful Stanley Park!

She’s an aspiring actor, who also has an ear for music – she taught herself how to play the bass guitar just by watching YouTube videos! Zowie also has a knack for sewing, and loves to make herself new clothing items out of her little brothers’ Marvel pajamas. Her favourite traditional food from her community is ‘flour soup’, which is tomato soup with ground beef, vegetables, and flour – which she says makes a really weird texture – but she loves it! Zowie says her best quality is her kindness. She once cut off all her hair to help cancer patients!
