The Inertia

At Lower Trestles alone on a sunny afternoon in late July, there’s got to be at least a million toe-headed groms that rip ruling the lineup. So what makes Jackson Dorian different? The tutelage of his dad for one. And having Kelly Slater as a godfather doesn’t hurt either.

Beyond being a surfing role model, when asked what his dad has taught him, Jackson’s answer (like his surfing) shows a kid well beyond his years. “Be kind and humble… because that’s how you make friends.” Well said, Jackson!
