Watch: Barron Mamiya // One Week
Fresh out of his teenage years, Barron Mamiya spiralled into a rotten run of luck.
The first was missing the CT cut off by two places. Barron sat on the cusp for much of the year and was expected to make big leaps come Hawaii, and leap he did, though not quite enough to get him over the line.
Second was a shoulder injury that sideliened him for much of the following Hawaiian season.
While the third was his long time sponsor, Hurley, who'd supported him since he was thirteen, failing to renew their contract come December 31st 2019.
Fortunately for the twenty-year old, RVCA filled the sponsorship breech, his shoulder healed and a late season run of swell meant all wasn't lost from the Hawaiian season.
The following was filmed over one week in April.
