For some time now, Barron Mamiya has been claimed by some to be “The Next Big Thing” to come out of Hawaii.

The Oahu resident’s casual approach to surfing the heaviest of tubes draws parallels to another North Shore ace, John John Florence, and his air chops are nothing to scoff at either. This could be a breakout year for Mamiya, who apparently has a new video series in the works, the trailer for which you can watch above.
