With multiple NSSA Championships, a 1st place at the 2010 Rip Curl Grom Search, and most recently a Gold Medal at the 2012 ISA World Championships with team Hawaii, Koa Smith has the skills most young surfers dream about. Born on Kauai and now splitting time between Oahu’s infamous North Shore and San Clemente, this 17 year old Hawaiian phenom is taking the surfing world by storm.

Koa is a versatile surfer with an arsenal of airs and maneuvers, but the young Hawaiian prefers barreling Pipe and tubes in Indo. He has even competed in the Rip Curl Cup Padang Padang, in which he showcased his surfing abilities in heavy conditions alongside some of the best surfers in the world.
