13 year old Californian Grom tests out some Irish Waves

Sam Reichel from Gaviota, California came to Ireland recently and scored some sweet September Swell on the West Coast. At just 13 years of age the Cali grom is already sponsored by Oakley and O’Neill and for such a youngster he has traveled extensively to a host of far flung destinations such as Mexico, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Samoa, South Africa and Hawaii to name a few. See how he fared in the colder Irish waves in the video below. As a duel citizen, Sam hopes to someday surf for Ireland. This guy shreds! Enjoy!
