Everywhere you turn these days, there seems to be another Super Grom working their way through the ranks and the future of Surfing is certainly going to be entertaining and explosive for years to come. It almost seems a weekly occurrence that a video is released of yet another mature and progressive teenager ripping it up. Two that have stuck out this week are of 15 year old Jake Marshall and Tane Bowden who is a mere 13 years of age.
The first video is of Tane and features him Surfing at Bells Beach as he rides with a talent way beyond what any 13 year old should really have. As you would expect from teenagers these days, he shows no respect or courtesy to the righthand point break as he hacks, carves and airs at will, in a dazzling display of flair and skill.
Our second clip takes us to El Salvador, where we see Jake Marshall in action and Surfing with strength and wisdom of a man twice his age. In fact, when you watch the clip, if you didn’t know how old he was, you would swear that Jake was well in his twenties. It is only when you hear him speak of his journey towards his dream of joining the World tour that his voice gives away his young age.
Both videos are below this article, make sure you take a look, because they are sure to make you wish to be a teen again and rue the wasted days spent playing footy or chasing girls! Let us know if seeing these young rippers makes you feel old, or are you pleased that these young guns are carrying the Surfing baton forward?
