A fine eight-minute short of bright new talent and the fusty, but not-yet-dimmed master.
Here, a very good eight-minute short of the Angourie surfer Dakoda Walters swinging around the West Coast of Australia with Taj Burrow, no intro necessary etc.
Taj, of course, is the king of the flock in this part of the world, this coastline with its hellish climate and great white sharks. Dakota, who is the eldest son of the one-time-pro Jeremy Walters, emerges with full honours in their various sessions.
Mick Fanning, meanwhile, calls Dakoda “the next big thing.”
Taj says, “I just love watching the next generation step up.”
