Eli Hanneman is a 12 year old kid from Lahaina, Maui, who definitely rips. He shows age doesn’t matter at all. Tube rides, aerial moves, perfect Cut backs, smooth Bottom turn. And everything incredible stylish. It’s incredible to see what a kid of that young age is able to do in waves. If we remember correctly Luke and Levi Siver, Kai Lenny, Bernd Roediger or Mark and Josh Angulo are good examples in wave windsurfing, who had immense skills at a very young age.

Let’s see how Eli will continue. Hurley, the brand, who wants to be a microphone for the youth and sees kids part of their future, released that cool clip about their young rider Eli.
