TODAYS FEATURED VIDEO COMES WITH A WARNING – if you continue to watch the clip below you WILL develop a serious inferiority complex and will be left feeling inadequate, old and feckless. The video features a young lad from Maui who goes by the name of Eli Hanneman and the 12 year old who is sponsored by Hurley surfs better than you and any of your friends. Fact.
Eli, who lives to surf, has got it all. He has an accomplished rail game, a bag full of air tricks and an amazing awareness but is still driven to be an even more accomplished surfer in all types of waves and a desire to ride every wave differently to the one before. We have previously featured many young guns who have caught our attention and we have predicted bright futures for them all, but Eli is different – he is the future and the future is now.
Watching the video of Eli in action, there seems no reason why he isn’t already on the World Tour and giving the big boys a run for their money. Don’t just take our word for it, take a look for yourself and let us know what you think, but be warned – if you click you will be left feeling pig sick!
