Watch: Adrien Toyon // First Love
Recently Adrien Toyon returned to his parent's Reunion Island house and found his very first surfboard. A Lightning Bolt twin fin shaped by Graham 'G-Force' Smith - yeah, Jordy's old man.
"When I was nine-years old, my parents gave me [the board] for Christmas - almost twenty years ago!"
"I found it again...and I brought it here."
"Here" is Anglet in France, where Toyon now lives. However, he didn't hop straight back onto the board.
"It spent some time in my garage looking at me," says Toyon. But when the time was right, and a nearby left switched on, the board performed.
"That single concave and sharp lines were perfect on this day."
"I never thought I was going to surf this board again, and even more in these kind of waves.”
