Matahati Drollet, Future King Of Chopes

What were you doing when you were 17? Down the Arndale getting pissed up? Riding your bike over mounds of dirt? Drinking bottles of strongy round a camp fire and thinking about who’s tent you were going to get into later?or  perhaps all of the above? We reckon we know what you weren’t doing and that’s surfing massive chopes with ease and perfect precision. Maybe its because there isn’t an Arndale centre on Tahiti, but we’re pretty impressed thats what Matahi Drollet has decided to do with his formative years and it looks like its going to pay off for him.
