"He surfs like Bruce Irons," tells Maui's Micah Nickens. "I've been watching him and all of those Maui kids since they were little groms and Granger has really developed his sense of style over the years." A very complete surfer, Granger Larsen is not only becoming one of the most eye-pleasing young freesurfers to watch, but he's also got a nose for competition. Sparing with the likes of Dusty Payne, Clay Marzo, Kai Barger, and a host of Maui's rising stars, he's quickly becoming a seasoned competitor. When it comes to pulling in, Granger's got no problem, even if at times he is a bit preoccupied with releasing his fins and flying through the air. Like the freesurfing/competitor conundrum that's plagued Bruce Irons, Granger's going to need to find his focus to take his career to the next level. All the attributes of a future star are there, now it's just time to chose a path.
