Kolohe Andino understands the weight of high expectations. He's carried the burden of being "The Next Big Thing" since turning pro at the ripe age of 15. Yet, the young Californian, raised on the beaches of San Clemente, has handled the pressure and media scrutiny with class and humility. Like a counter-punching welterweight clocking points throughout a fight, Andino's ticked all the boxes. Growing bigger, stronger and more mature with each successive season, he's emerged a complete surfer. And now, all the hard work is paying off -- he's ranked No. 4 in the world, staring straight down the barrel of a legitimate Title chase in 2017.
