Not many 11-year-olds have their own website, blog, personal logo, and an impressive list of big name sponsors, but then again not many 11-year-olds can surf like this. Meet Kyuss King from Byron Bay, Australia, a prodigy on both surf and skateboard, much in the same mold as other young phenoms like John John Florence and Curren Caples. The two videos below should give you an idea of the level this kid is surfing at, which then begs the question, what will he be doing on a wave when he’s 20?
Kyuss spent a bit of the summer in Southern California, sampling the waves and concrete on offer, as well as soaking up some of the sights and sounds. This is his latest video offering.
And here is a clip from earlier this year and last of Kyuss surfing some of the waves around his family’s Byron home.
