There is no more promising young surfer alive today than 14-year-old Kanoa Igarashi. This year alone, Kanoa placed 2nd at the Nike U.S. Open Pro Junior Tournament, 2nd at the King Of The Groms Global Championships in France, and became the youngest ever Under-18 U.S. National Champion. Last year he shattered the NSSA record with an astonishing 30 surfing victories in a single season! With a fierce competitive streak that runs through every aspect of his life, Kanoa is certain to be a force to be reckoned with in the years and decades to come.
