She may not be the most powerful female surfer in the world yet, but don't take your eyes off of 16-year-old Dax McGill. Last year she won the NSSA Open Women's division (her brother Flynn won the Open Boys), adding to her already well-padded competitive resume.

Growing up on the North Shore of Oahu, she's seen the world's best surfers come trudging through her backyard, and as such is wise and experienced beyond her age. And with her having a role model like Carissa Moore to look up to, the future is bright on Oahu.
