Dusty Payne is perhaps the most well rounded surfer of his generation. With the explosive ability to launch massive airs, together with a flawless style and madman charging capabilities, Dusty will be a threat for years to come. He’s beginning to resemble another fellow blonde Hawaiian on Volcom whos done pretty good for himself: Bruce Irons. Dusty will be a standout at the Hobgood Challenge, no question about it.
