WSL: Renowned Coach Rainos Hayes Talks About His Best Students

Billabong Bloodlines coach Rainos Hayes was recently profiled by WorldSurfLeague.com where he spoke at length about some of his favorite athletes he's coached during his long and successful career.

On Keanu Asing: "Keanu has always been all heart and hard work. He is extremely genuine and dedicated and has earned everything he has. He has a great foundation and work ethic instilled by his father, Tommy."

On the Hawaii Surf Team: "Through the Hawaii Surf Team, I have had the opportunity to work with all our Hawaiian ladies on the WSL women's CT. An incredible gift."

On Josh and Seth Moniz: "They're champions with surfing in their bloodline. Both very enjoyable young men and extremely comfortable at Pipeline, Backdoor and Off-The-Wall."

On Finn McGill: "I have always known that he would be a North Shore performer but to see his work come together earlier than I thought has been an incredible surprise."

On Andy Irons: "He knew he could trust me and actually asked for some help, which was not like him at all. He went on to make the semi's at Lower Trestles being stopped only by his own broken board."
