Just want to spark a little debate about this kid. Sal at the Nike6.0 comp mentioned that Michael Parsons personally quit his career at Billabong to "make" Kolohe a good surfer. I liked his surfing until I heard this comment. Something about being "made" doesn't strike well with me. Obv, the kid rips but is that from being babied on Indo boat trips or is it natural skill. Point being I'd rather see the kid without any industry help on the podium rather than Kolohe now. Really I dont like how the industry is all over this kids nuts. I thought it was because he was ripping but little did I know it was just Mike Parsons giving blowjobs to industry execs.
