• Billabong Signs Junior Star Kai Hing

Billabong is proud to welcome Kai Hing to the family.

Hing, 18, hails from the Sunshine Coast of Queensland and began surfing at 5-years-old. Growing up just a mere 50 meters from the beach, Kai found it fairly easy to hone his skills during his early years. With full support from his family as he began to progress, Hing went on to excel in his amateur career. Highlights for Hing include an Australian Title, a Pro Junior win in New Zealand, and winning the Australian Junior Series. With a promising future ahead, Kai's career goals include making the World Tour, winning a World Title and just being a good person.

"Super excited to be a part of Billabong," says Kai. "From what I've noticed, they treat their riders like family, and that's what I love to see in a brand. Can't wait to be a part of the fam!"
