A Hot 100 Excerpt

See who topped SURFER's annual ranking of the world's best young surfers

For almost 25 years SURFER’s Hot 100 has ranked, and predicted the fortunes of surfing’s next generation. Many of the Hot 100 alumni have gone on to become freesurfing superstars, World Title contenders, World Champions, and multiple World Champions, and we predict this year’s class to be no different. Some of the predictions were easy, others required hours of debate and analysis, but make no mistake, all the surfers on this list (and some that aren’t) deserve to be there. But there can only be 100, and the stats below show, they come from all over the planet. Congratulations to the Hot 100 class of 2014. —Brendon Thomas
