Contrary to popular belief, our favorite identical twins are not Mary-Kate and Ashley. It’s not Kelly Slater and Vin Diesel, either. Our favorite twins are none other than Damien and CJ Hobgood. And while CJ is finishing his last year on tour, his bro Damien was out in Indonesia putting on a tube-riding clinic for all the young grommets.
Aside from the fascinating surfing that is Damien Hobgood, the commentary from his unofficial students was a breath of fresh air. Their tone was nothing short of reverent, as each and every surfer spoke to the tremendous amount of respect they have for Damien, both for his surfing and his status as a role model. Join the little groms and take a few notes for yourself.
