The Inertia

It’s crazy to think that Maui’s Eli Hanneman is only 13 years old. It will be years until he can legally drive a car or buy a beer, but he’s already doing things on a surfboard that many of us will sadly never be able to do. And as mind-boggling as it is to witness such surfing from such a small kid, it’s even more overwhelming to think where he’ll be when he tacks on a few inches and pounds. Watch out, World Tour surfers. Eli Hanneman’s a comin’.


Only the best. We promise.
