It will soon be a year since young Rafael Howell, who came straight from Siargao, became Saudi Arabia's first grom. A country where millions of children live, but only one jumps into the occasional waves of the Persian Gulf. But while the country is changing in a positive way on several aspects, coastal activities are still viewed rather badly. The fault lies with the security services who are trying to stop the arrival of the Iranians. Patrols are thus set up along the Saudi banks, leaving no respite to surfers who wish to have fun in the waves by asking them to get out of the water... But nothing happens, young Rafael Howell clings to his dreams, and it's not a few police patrols that make his eyes cold!
