Meet: Eli Hanneman, a 12 year-old that rips

Eli Hanneman is a 12-year old surfer from Maui surfing far beyond his years. His rail game is tack sharp as is his aerial act, combined with a good read in barrel, this kid is arguably the best surfer under 13 in the world. Smooth, stylish and grounded expect big things from Eli in the years to come.

Brent Dorrington is out of bounds and at Lowers

'Midget Magic' as he's affectionately known to his peers recently headed over to California and spent a whole lot of time at the cobblestone break of Lowers. There's not a lot of shoeys in this clip but it's been replaced by a whole lot of shredding. If Brenno can put some results on the board in the back end of the year he might be able to qualify for the CT in 2016. Imagine the party that would be.

Billy Stairmand and the little things

He also takes some time out to enjoy the little things in life that are easy to forget when you’re battling to qualifying for a spot on the championship tour.

Bangers, with Jay Davies and Harry Bryant

This is could be our clip of the week. Jay Davies and Harry Bryant share amazing beach break barrels somewhere in the southwest of WA and throw a little bit of North Point in there for good measure. This is a good old fashioned surf trip.
