Why the Flying Fish as the logo
A flying fish is widely spread across the worlds oceans. Although they have many predators, the have this very unique ability to make powerful, self-propelled leaps out of water where their long wing-like fins enable gliding for considerable distances above the water's surface. This uncommon ability is a natural defense mechanism to evade predators. This almost resembles the youth of today as they have to dodge a bunch of bullets to be able to get out in nature and enjoy what it has to offer. This is also the reason that the Exocet-missile is named after them, as variants are launched from underwater, and take a low trajectory, skimming the surface, before striking their prey. So this means that the youth might seem fragile in life, but they can also make a difference if directed correctly. At the end of the day, the next generation is key to the future of our sport. Although they are young and have a lot of obstacles to overcome. They have all the power of creating this future for our sport, not only as a sport and a community, but as a life style.
