Did you look him up before assuming he was raised to be the entitled little shithead that he is?

Hard to find a grom board off the rack. Maybe parents just stoked him/her out since the kid loves to surf and wanted a good board that wasn't oversized or a hand-me-down.

ok, i'm sorry but following an 8 y/o girl is creepy, regardless of her abilities or pretty much anything else. and since the parents had to enable this, they are creepier still.

I dunno, a 9 year old non home schooled kid who takes it on his own to raise over $40k for a non-prof that helps people in Indo seems deserving of a trip there.

kid looks like he actually rips pretty hard so I wouldn't really classify him in the london almida category... Makes sense to get a kid like that, who actually has a shot at going pro, to get on good boards early.

As far as the indo shit goes, I'm sure that's just some feel good bs he did with hurley like all their team riders do in indo. Spend the obligatory day dropping off water filters, etc.

that's not the point.
it's jumping to conclusions about a board being for a self entitled boy wannabe sponsored surfer. just took a quick reading of the comments on Biolos's post to figure out the board was for a 8 year old girl.

WAY cheaper sponsoring a bunch of groms than a CT guy. look at what Quiksilver did. cut all the adults and kept a grom team.


I've heard much higher numbers for under 15.

I can think of so many groms who I came up with that were hyped and invested in that don't even surf anymore. Why not just wait on the 10-12 year olds and grab the creme of the crop at 18? You're still going to pay market price but saved on sponsoring them from 10 on up.

Also, I'm just jealous that this kid doesn't have to surf a Johnny Boy Gomes sunset gun as a daily driver at that age.






(Jokes aside: thank you very much Mom for hooking up the JBG gun)

typically it's 3 year deals. so by 18 that's where the kid is either going to get dropped or go onto the QS where the bigger investment comes into play. for the cost on under 18 groms sponsors are getting LOTS of eyeballs via instagram. and good amount are teenage girls that can drive traffic into their girls clothing line too.

You think he came up with that idea on his own?

Doesn't matter who it is, male or female.

It's just a symptom of why surfing has gone in the direction it has culturally.

These groms are constantly told how much they rip, people constantly giving them free sh*t, custom boards, parents blocking for them, paddle battling adults and grabbing set waves (often with an adult coming to their defense), etc.


There's something to be said for paddling around on some yellowed POS that's too big for you and being scared to come anywhere near the peak for fear of getting your head ripped off. Humility. These kids don't have it.

still jumping to conclusions. How do you know it's not a board the little girl saved up $'s by herself. could be a b-day gift from her parents. or if she even has sponsorship aspirations.

Doesn't matter.

Kid can't even paddle into waves on her own.

"Or if she even has sponsorship aspirations"

roflmao

C'mon man, who are you kidding?

Her videos are posted all over youtube for a reason.

Fertile ground for pervs and pedos.

Parents are very willing too.
