Today we feature a video of a young lad who is definitely making waves in the sport of surfing and at the age of 5 years old is already displaying skills and a confidence that will surely see him becoming a bright star of the future. The talented grom in question is called Kai Kai Alcala who is from the Philippines and it turns out surfing runs deep in the little lads blood.
Kai Kai is surrounded by surfing talent as his Mum is the 5 times Philippine surfing champion Manette Alcala and his uncle Piso has won the Cloud 9 International Surfing Cup a total of three times. Kai Kai is also heavily influenced by his mums fiancé who is the professional surfer and paddleboarder Kyron Rathbone, who we featured surfing the Benak Tidal Bore in Malaysia last year.
In the entertaining clip below, we see Kai Kai pumping his surfboard and picking up the smallest of waves as he films himself holding a camera pole and even turns to face backwards on one wave. With so much incredible natural talent, the influence of his surfing family and the quality waves of the Philippines, Kai Kai is definitely a star of the future and we look forward to seeing how good Kai Kai is when he gets old – say about 7!
