Griffin Colapinto is a name that once you have heard it, you won’t forget it, and if you are lucky enough to see Griffin in the water, it will further cement his reputation into your memory bank. The super talented young surfer originates from San Clemente in California and is punching well above his weight – and winning.
With a host of sponsorship deals, regular contest wins, a bagful of tricks and his youthful athleticism and strength on his side Griffin is set for a massive future in the industry. In fact although he is still only fifteen, it seems a little unfair that he still carries the badge of “grom” around with him.
The clip below, released by his Billabong sponsors, shows just how good Griffin is and why he is regarded by many as the best young surfer on the planet right now. With skills this polished at this young age, surely a stint on the Pro Tour beckons? Have you seen a more talented teenager, if so let us know?
