There's nothing like learning to surf when you're still under 10.

But Eli Hanneman's age doesn't explain everything. This kid was born to surf. At only 14, he surfs like a pro and reads the wave like a seasoned veteran.

Hanneman is 14 and hails from the Maui. Watch him negotiating deep barrels and launching himself into the air, in some of the most challenging waves on the planet.

The Chilean big wave surf break of Punta de Lobos and the idyllic Australian point break of Noosa have been officially declared the 9th and 10th World Surfing Reserves, respectively.
