Here at SUP Magazine, we are always on the lookout for fresh talent that’s ready to burst onto the SUP scene. We scour the internet, talk to our sources and generally keep our ear to the sand in hopes of discovering our sport’s next super grom. But when we finally strike internet gold and find that next young shredder, it’s a rush of excitement.

That’s what it felt like when we came across this latest cut of Puerto Rican grom Max Torres, who hails from the town of Isabela. The teenager can flat-out rip, a case he lays out quite convincingly in this three-minute edit. See for yourself and remember the name, we expect to be hearing it much more in the coming years.


Meet another one of the sport’s future stars, Ryan Funk.
