Surfer Leila Hurst shares her sister's struggle and her hope with Vans

We're excited to announce that Vans' offthewall.tv and Uber Content have just launched the second season of their inspirational web video series, Pass the Bucket.

The sophomore effort kicks off with a story we may otherwise have never known: Professional surfer Leila Hurst was born to be an athlete, raised on the island of Kauai, the same surf factory that produced Bruce and Andy Irons and Keala Kennelly—but her sister was born with a spinal defect that would prevent her from even getting on a board—until now.
