Leonardo Fioravanti // Hawaii // 2:56

Leonardo Fioravanti will go. He makes that very clear in this clip. We always knew that the kid had a good style and an arc that swooped like a crane. And we always knew that he wasn’t afraid of bigger waves — but we didn’t know that he surfed Pipe with this much fire in his eyes. Like, that wave at :26? Not so bad for a 16-year-old kid from Italy.
