Haleiwa local boy Barron Mamiya is on the move. Unveiling a gritty performance in his latest edit "Barron 21," he handles Pipe ledges and sketchy air sections with the confidence and ablomb that headier days are still to come. Committed, refined and well-rounded, it seems just a matter of time before his brand of surfing changes the game.
And we couldn't think of a more fitting sticker on the nose for Barron than RVCA. The brand's roots run deep and strong. Their commitment to the North Shore is omnipresent. From rolling with legends at Sunset Beach Jujitsu, to no-holds-barred rushing the pit at the Banzai, it's about keeping the chin up and aspiring to greatness. Barron's fierce, high-speed, lay-it-on-the line style reflects the mix of grace and power every fighter needs to survive and thrive. First paddling out at Pipe at nine years young, a dozen years into the game he's earned his rightful place in the lineup.
Barron's always worked for what he has -- no handouts, no free passes -- and it looks like all that work is paying off in this new, break-out, self-directed edit. How can you not love what Barron is all about? We can't wait to see what comes next.
