Tanner Hendrickson’s dominance at the 2015 Vans US Open should have surprised nobody. He grew up on Maui. Really, that’s all that needs to be said. The place produces some of the best surfers in the world and those “best in the world” are also Hendrickson’s best friends. I’m talking Albee Layer, Matt Meola, Kai Barger, and such. However, the transfer to 1-foot Huntington can be a bit much for guys used to a lot more power. You’ll see here that Hendrickson put in some time working with the smaller stuff before showing up to the HB pier and busting heads.
