We're getting some young Kelly vibes from this 12-year-old shredder from the Outer Banks. Big call? Yes... But we'll give you five reasons:

He's from the East Coast, surfs for Quiksilver, is a regularfooter, dominates the NSSA (even in higher divisions) and drops rad freesurf edits.

That's just about as close as a grom can get to the 11x World Champ and greatest of all time. And he's not even a teenager yet!

Regardless of the comparison, we're stoked on Will Deane and think he surfs far beyond his years. He's got alley-oops on lock, smooth rail work, and command over unpredictable Atlantic barrels.
