Over the last two years, 17-year old Ned Hart has been turning heads during surf trips to Hawaii (scored big Waimea), Tahiti, and of course Shipsterns, where he recently scored two incredible waves, one a low-probability make, the other notable for its sheer size.

This week he released a short clip, all of it filmed off the southern end of his home state, and all of it in heavy water. Hear as he describes his first taste of a two-wave hold down.

Like Russell Bierke before him, Ned is eyeing a future as a big wave freesurfer. Also like Russ, he has a calm demeanour, which is a prerequisite in the XXL slab era, when two-wave hold downs are an increasingly common occurrence - gotta save that breath.

Expect to see and hear much more from Ned in the coming years.
