Kolohe Andino wins Quiksilver USA surfing championship

Kolohe Andino 10 point ride at Quiksilver USA surfing championship

 Check the link above to witness Kolohe Andino absolutely annihilate his final wave at Lower Trestles to be crowned winner of the Under 18 category of the Quicksilver USA surfing championships.
Trestles pumped for the majority of the contest with consistent 4-6 ft waves which looked almost double overhead for most of the competitors. (being groms)
Kolohe Andino, 17, from San Clemente, was super eager to take this one after not reaching the finals in a previous Lower Trestles event. And boy was he unbeatable. Ian Gential put the pressure on slightly at the beginning of the final but then Kolohe’s domination came in to full force and he finished with a combined heat total of 18.67!
Nowadays it seems like every single surfer is ‘He’s one to watch out for’ or ‘He’s going to be the next Slater’ but it actually seems a possibility with this kid. A lot of people seem to be investing plenty of time and money in to him. He has just confirmed a long contract with Billabong (god knows how much that was worth???) and has one of the best crew around him that is available in the surfing world. Anyway, even if he doesn’t make it (although he is destined for the World Tour) , he is still going to be rich, not have to work ever in his life and get to surf all day every day.Not bad eh
