Taj & Kannon
Kannon White is a 13 year old surfer from Maui who absolutely loves surfing and he looks forward to it everyday. Words can’t even describe what surfing has done for him, he says. He surfs 5 out of 7 days of the week. When he is not surfing or skating, he is doing his homework to maintain being a good student. Kannon thinks it is good to use sunscreens such as Raw Love that do not contain Oxybenzone, a chemical that can harm our reefs. This is why he is proud to represent “the best sunscreen he has ever used.” He can always count on Raw Love to keep him safe from sunburns.
