The idea behind the series is to illuminate and introduce you to some of the younger surfers we’ve been watching and getting psyched on. Kai Neville has been grooming and documenting the elite in surfing through his filmmaking for a while now and we can all feel a major shift about to occur. And we want to know who’s next.

Because at the end of the day, flair in the water is what gets you there, but it takes a lot more to rise above the chaotic world of web clips and over-hyped Vimeo links.
