A few of you may have heard of Connor from Cronulla before, but for those who are uneducated, here is a brief rundown.
The kid is half Aussie, half Japanese and surfs like a cross between Taj Burrow and Tom Curren. Kinda. His old girl Akemi is a former Japanese champ. He is currently dating pro junior dynamo Steph Single. He works as a surf coach in his spare time. He thinks Australian Japanese food “isn’t too bad.” He had a bit of a crack on the Pro Juniors, but is probably doing better on the WQS, earning himself a seed into the Prime events this year
