It’s been a good while since a (male) Victorian surfer has made their mark in the elite realm of professional Surfing. Of course Nikki Van Dijk has proudly flown the fag for Vicco on the women’s side, but what of the men? When will we see Victoria’s next best thing emerge from the shadows?

According to Rip Curl, it may be coming in the shape of a red-headed, AFL playing, salt of the earth school kid by the name of Xavier Huxtable, or Xav Hux for short.

Judging by the quality of surfing displayed in this clip, we think they may be onto something.
