Ollie Turrell – 8 year old Champ
MR GROM himself – Ollie Turrell is the youngest ever British champ.
Here’s the dude in action at SIX years old. Unbelievable. As far as he’s concerned that wave is damn near head-height! I’m going to guess this is not the last we’ve heard of this young chap.
This is Cornwall says: “The competition was scored on a handicap basis to even it up but Ollie still saw off everyone in the under 16s with a series of onboard tricks such as forward rolls and riding backwards.”
So there you have it. The foundation of a record breaking surfer. Good luck, Ollie!
I always wished my parents had set me up with a hobby when I was a tiddler. I’ll bet Messi was kicking a footy before he could walk.
