Young Gunning: Kolohe Andino Smashes Vans Pier Classic and Vans Pro Junior, Grabs Second at Machado Seaside Pro Junior
Kolohe “Brother” Andino is on a mission. Judging by his early season smack down at events like the Vans Pier Classic and the Vans Pro Junior in Huntington Beach, it’s safe to say that Oakley’s young California phenom is on track to challenge for the ASP North American Junior Series Title. The San Clemente ripper employed a killer combination of ultra progressive surfing and massive amounts of stamina to claim the ASP 4-star Pier Classic and Pro Junior. Going head-to-head with some of the best on the Planet, he emerged from the finals on top – pulling in a whopping $16,000 with his two wins and secured 1,000 One World Ranking points – proving fully that he’s able to throw down against the top pros in the industry in pressurized situations.
Lord Dorrington! Oakley Surf Shredder Brenno Claims Coldwater Classic Scotland Victory, Takes Series Lead
You know you’re the boss when you’re knighted…and now have a big arse sword for your trophy case. Just ask Oakley Surf Team Ripper Brent “Brenno” Dorrington, who came out of the ASP 6-Star O’Neill Coldwater Classic Scotland with a big victory and a new title: Lord Dorrington. (Now that’s sick.) The win over Jay Quinn was his first-ever ASP Star Tour triumph – wrapped up after a low scoring final in inconsistent 2-3ft waves at Thurso East reef. The result also powered him to top of the Coldwater Classic Series overall rankings.
