The Man-child from the West Coast of Australia has been on the surf radar for years, making Surfer Mag’s #1 spot in the Hot 100 list at age 14 and then making a dramatic entrance into adulthood with his Men’s Pipeline Invitational win at age 18. He shows a startling lack of fear in ledgy hollow waves and spots with lots of moving water, like Sunset Beach. Most startling about Jack’s surfing is his technical tuberiding, chosing lines many consider unmakeable, but of course making it. Taj Burrow says of Jack: “He’s like a young Andy Irons. He loves surfing so much. He’s going to absolutely shine. I look forward to watching his surfing progress.
