Hot 100 Preview

Get ready for the Hot 100 with clips of the most talented young surfers

| posted on March 22, 2011

Every year, we painstakingly sift through thousands of pictures, watch hours of video, and talk to everyone wearing an expert cap to rank the best young surfers. Mick, Parko, and Jordy were all No. 1 in the Hot 100 before they ever stood on World Tour podiums, and to earn that coveted spot is to pretty much guarantee that you will have a very bright future in surfing. With the 2011 Hot 100 on newsstands soon, we decided to give you a taste of tomorrow’s best surfers. What follows is a random selection of Hot 100 surfers ripping around the world. Take a look at these video clips (posted in no particular order) and let us know where you think they belong on our list of future surfing greats:

    Florence’s win over Jamie O was out of this world!! No other kid in the world can even dream about ruling Pipeline like that. Florence is number 1.

    Kolohe Andino has shown modesty and honesty through his surfing career and I believe he deserves a title.
    From his performance the other day, I wish him luck in the future.

    All are deserving, but alejo is already a reality.
