This morning was an action packed grom session at Pipeline. Judging by all of the Nike stickers we saw, Hurley must have just picked up every young gun out there with a surf board. It seems like every rider under 16 was rocking a Nike sticker out there today, which will all be replaced by Hurley momentarily I would guess. In the hour and a half that I snuck away from my web design work, I saw 5 broken boards and took 1,200 photos.
There were two people who really stood out today. The first, was a very young surfer who appears to be riding for Volcom. He looks to be around 12 at the oldest, and he was just charging it at Pipe! Had I only been doing that at his age…..
The second stand out is a guy we’ve seen out at Pipe a lot. No clue who he is, and he doesn’t appear to have a big sponsor. Today he got more perfect barrels and launched the sickest airs I have every seen. Whoever he is, someone needs to pick him up.
Below are the pics of the day. Definitely more than usual, but there was so much to shoot!
