remember, i work in a high-profile nj shop & see this kind of **** regularly.
I thought this video was great, it's cool seeing kids perform at high levels. He is probably better half the people I see in the line up. I am sure this is a dumb question, what is GIF? BTW the billboard stickers don't bother me, he's probably emulating his favorite pro or has them cause he thinks it's cool. It can't be as bad a kids wearing $200 sneakers cause some B Ball player wears them.
Hell yeah!... My parents wanted me to go to college because they didn't... Well I want my kid to win an ASP world title because I didn't, get me some free shwag that I couldn't pull on my own surfing merit, and make me some money to pay me back the cost of raising him... Oh wait you're saying it's a bad thing...more & more superstar microgroms being pushed very hard by helicopter/soccer parents looking to either live vicariously thru, or make a buck off of, their kids. it's a shame, but it's true.
He is talented, but I can't help but think about how much I hate being burned by a grom. You can't yell at them, they are kids.... but they do that sh*t over and over.
again, he is talented. I give him as much credit in that category as possible. I couldn't even swim very well at 8 years old. I mean, it's hard to have a conversation with a kid that age but he is boosting and throwing the tail...
Check out the clip I posted of him surfing Hermosa and Quepos
he is as talented as any other tiny feather light agile kid. the true test comes when he actually starts growing.
