Bethany Hamilton is one of the most inspiring characters in our humble sport. To have her singing your praises holds some serious weight, and she can’t say enough about young Hawaiian shredder Erin Brooks.

Recently Bethany, who shares Rip Curl as a sponsor with the 13-year-old, headed to Waco with Erin and the two spent a few days lighting up the pool. Watching the clip you quickly get why Bethany is such a fan. The 13-yearold possesses an air game that’d put a good few of the world’s best to shame.

The future of women’s surfing is in good hands.
