Kolohe Andino spent most of the offseason at home in Southern California surfing with friends, snowboarding in Mammoth and moving out of his parents' house. Coming of age, he made great strides on tour last year and hopes to keep the progression. He's feeling more comfortable in Pacific reef waves like Teahupoo and Cloudbreak; at pointbreaks like Snapper and J-Bay, he has refined his rail work to a point where he's not completely reliant on his notorious air game. At 19, he's still one of the youngest people on tour, but he's starting to come into his own.
