I would usually laugh in the face of anyone that told me some 13 year old grom was Australia’s next big thing. How the hell can you tell me that mate? I mean, come on, he’s only 13! Hasn’t even proved himself yet! But when that person then tells me that he has already won the U16 Queensland titles and is the youngest in Queensland’s history to do so, including the uber cool Julian Wilson, well then, I damn well listen.
So here he is…
Not only is Kai Australia’s newest surfing prodigy but he’s also competed in nationals for Gymnastics, Diving and Lifesaving. Yep, that’s right, he’s Australia’s best at two of the most coveted aerial sports in Gym and Diving and the best at two of the most prestigious water sports in Surfing and Lifesaving. So now, when anyone mentions Kai Hing make sure those ears are clean and that your paying attention!
We’ll be doing a piece on Kai in the very near future but until then here is video to keep you happy. Peace
