Johnny Hicks

New Zealand Surfing - - Trigger Finger -

Young Donni would have to be cred­ited with lead­ing the charge in pro­gres­sive surf­ing on our shores at present. The lines he draws, and the places and an­gles he takes defy the laws of grav­ity. He can go weeks throw­ing down huge ma­noeu­vres not even com­ing close, then just as you blink, he will pull off some­thing down­right amaz­ing. It’s ei­ther all or noth­ing, that’s how he rolls. So at a re­cent In­di­ca­tors ses­sion af­ter throw­ing away move af­ter move, it could be said the cam­era, and those watch­ing, lost a lit­tle faith and gave up a lit­tle too soon. Johnny hadn’t given up though, and af­ter watch­ing empty white­wa­ter roll on through the val­ley for six sec­onds, to see Johnny ap­pear, we were more than blown away, and judg­ing by the body lan­guage when Johnny popped up, so was he. Keep the faith! You never know what could hap­pen.
