Eli Hanneman is only thirteen, but his surfing is far beyond his age. Displaying a rail game that’s as precise as his movements in the air, Eli brings a complete dynamic to his surfing.

Hawaii is guilty of spawning endless talent. On an average day, Eli spent about six hours to surf, sending spray off the back with as much power as his small frame can muster, threading sizeable tunnels and honing his already extraordinary air game.

This little boy wants to “prove to everyone he’s an all-round surfer” and after his display of turns, airs and barrel-riding in this Hurley Youth clip, you’ll take little convincing.
