This is the second straight year Chaz has won this category, and while he won’t stay young enough to qualify for much longer, it’s safe to assume he’ll keep piling up awards and accolades. The son of Kazuma Surfboards owner and surfing coach Matt Kinoshita, Chaz has blossomed under his father’s tutelage. In May, he won the Boy’s Open division of the Neil Pride HASA competition at Hookipa and, per Punker Pat’s Surf Blog over at rvca.com, got “his feet wet” at Jaws this winter. The only thing bigger than those waves may be what’s in store for this preternaturally gifted grom.
