It really doesn’t seem that long ago that Tanner McDaniel was beginning to turn heads and causing a stir, when he first started appearing alongside Mike Stewart as a slightly shy but gifted grom. Fast forward a few years and Tanner has polished and honed his skills and is currently sitting in 9th place on the APB Mens World Tour as well as coming fresh from a win at the Arica Chilean Challenge Pro Junior event. No longer a student, the blossoming Tanner recently enjoyed a 10 day trip to Australia and happened to time his trip with one of the best swells for many years. The result is a video masterclass from Tanner entitled Bangers and Mash.
In the 4 minute clip below, Tanner, who is sponsored by Science bodyboards, shows just why so many people consider him as one of the brightest talents in the sport of bodyboarding right now and one who is tipped to follow in the footsteps of his mentor and close friend Mike Stewart and collect multiple world titles. Tanner throws in airs and spins at will and rides with a confidence that makes it all look so effortless. Enjoy the “mash” up below, it really is a “banger” and let us know what you think – how long until Tanner wins his first World Title?
