Coco Ho, Backdoor fabulous, Hawaii

Coco Ho is one of the most exciting gal surfers around. Precision and power are her game and goddamn is she fast. Plus, of course, she comes from the collective of Hawaiian royalty that is the Ho family. "She rips, she's Hawaii's sweetheart and she's got that natural Ho mojo," says photog Laserwolf, who shot this at Backdoor just before dark on some skatepark grain formations. "We have the sickest sandbars built up at the moment. Everyone's gonna be over it once a good-sized Pipe swell shows up and it's all wonky, but for now it's making the smaller surf super rippable."
