Darci Liu is one of China's only female competitive surfers, in a country where most people avoid the sun, and many are afraid of the surf. 

Now Darci has just learned she's going to represent China for the first time ever in top-tier international competition, in a long-board surfing event run by the Association of Surfing Professionals (the ASP) in late October.

A few months ago Canadian journalist Danielle Nerman took to the beach on Hainan Island, to find out why Darci is so taken with surfing.
