This clip is part of HuffPost Live's "Tell Me Why" series, featuring young enthusiasts discussing the subjects they're passionate about -- from horror movies to string theory -- with experts.

Seven-year-old Lena Apolskis loves to boogie board, so she's looking to take her fun to the next level and learn how to surf.

HuffPost Live's Josh Zepps introduced Lena to professional surfer Keala Kennelly so Lena could ask some of her burning questions about the sport, like whether surfing requires constant application of sunscreen and how many surfboards Kennelly owns.

But when she was asked about her own experience with surfing, Lena got a little shy in the cutest way possible.

Zepps discussed Lena's recent trip to St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where she went boogie boarding. When he asked if she went really fast, Lena got pretty uncertain, taking a minute to think and then assessing her speed as "probably medium."

Check out the full HuffPost Live segment with the 7-year-old boogie boarder extraordinaire in the video above.
