Meet Josh Hay

Tuesday, 30 July 2013

Copacabana kid, Josh Hay, yesterday celebrated his 19th birthday by releasing the above clip of himself surfing around the Central Coast and Coffs Harbour.

We thought the best person to tell us more about Josh would be O'Neill Team Manager, Jarrad Howse:

"During my time as Australian Team Manager at O'Neill I got to know Josh well and was instantly blown away by his potential. This kid has got all the tricks in his artillery, and unlike most of the new flock his rail work matches the flare. Its not an easy time to be an aspiring pro where image & Instagram followers carry almost as much weight as talent and with only two domestic Junior Series events you have to think outside the box to get recognition. Josh is part of the next wave of Australian's ready to take on the WQS and I think he has what it takes to go all the way."

 

With a fifth in the last Junior Pro at Coffs Harbour we're excited to see what the future will bring for Josh "Pigzy" Hay.
