How Has Brother Never Won A CT?
The unsung king of the claim.
Spend 16 minutes watching “The Best of Kolohe Andino” and one thing becomes clear…the guy loves a good claim.
From stink-eyeing judges, to flipping the bird, to chest pounds and other bizarre behavior, whether he’s stomping an air reverse or betting spit out of a barrel, dude wants you know he’s proud of himself.
Jumping on tour at the spry age of 18, Brother has spent his entire adult life chasing CT points, and while he’s still yet to break the seal and win an event, last year he did find himself in the world title hunt and qualified for the Olympics. With his NASCAR style and flag-waving pride, he’s become the de facto face of American surfing.
There’s plenty to celebrate in this latest edit from the WSL, and remember, don’t claim it if you don’t mean it.
