North Shore, Oahu
Koa, born on Oahu and Son of Hui co-founder Eddie Rothman, is clearly a standout in the younger generations of our surfing culture. Koa is consistently proving his talents at his home break, Pipeline, and pushing the limits to arguably the most dangerous wave in the world, Teahupo'o. Koa is clearly fearless when it comes to big wave riding and on the path in molding what it takes to be a true waterman for the future generations. In 2014 Koa was awarded both the Tube and Wipeout of the Year at the Billabong XXL event.
