How many surfers under the age of eighteen are you going to catch taming teahupoo like Eimeo Czermak? The answer is, very few indeed.

Like most people over the past six months, Eimeo had his plans put on hold by the Covid pandemic. But luckily for him, that meant an extended stay at home in Tahiti, tropical paradise and home to some of the best waves on earth.

Now, the sixteen-year-old has dropped a new edit which showcases a preternatural tube riding ability and, if we're not mistaken, a distinct influence taken from a certain two-time World Champion.

Watch Eimeo surf, and then tell us he didn't grow up watching John John Florence clips.
