Mitch Crews, Ballito, South Africa

"Dude surfs like he has just had about 20 cups of coffee," says Ryan Miller of Mitch Crews, pictured here. Ryan ain't wrong – y'seen this man on a wave? Pure, frantic energy. "Kinda cool to see someone that fired up while a lot of people in the lineup look like they aren't enjoying themselves nearly as much." And when Mitch throws that enthusiasm into finners like this one, sparks certainly fly. In a fairly low-key South African lineup on this particular day, due to a relaxed swell, Mitch's vibrancy stood out more than usual. Nothing wrong with that though, huh?
