MAUI HIDALGO, SURF SESSION WITH DUKE AND LILAY
This dude’s name is Duke. He is from Bagasbas Beach, Philippines. Already in his early teens, I’m guessing around 15. He started surfing when he was just a little boy. Doesn’t have a proper sponsor, this kid rips on a surfboard. Technical but also has that solid style. Nowadays, he’s more active sa Downhill Longboarding. Just last week he won a downhill race.
And this is Lilay, a girl surfer who is also from Bagasbas beach. I think she’s only 12 years old and she won a national women’s surf competition last year. She is not sponsored, and sadly doesn’t own a surfboard. She only borrows surfboards from others. The board she used when she won that surf comp was a borrowed board and that board has been snapped in half already and they just repaired it.
