Another wave of victory set in for our surfing prodigy, Eli Olson. WSL hosted the Hawaii Regionals event this past November 6, which accumulated the athletes' scores from 5 different events they held this year (3 in Hawaii and 2 in Tahiti). Eli managed to score the best overall run for 2016. This earned him the trophy over a couple hundred other surfers, undeniably proving that he's been the most consistent surfer of the year!
Our surfer has kept up a pretty stable training regime in preparations for his events. He surfs a lot at the spot every single day, with a mix of cross training and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as much as 2-3 times a week. Eli says he's persistent with this schedule, "So I'm ready for whatever at any time."
The Vans Triple Crown is underway for November 12-23. It's one of the biggest surfing competitions in the world! Best believe that our talent is more than excited to be a part of this prestigious event. Eli also earned a slot into the World Surf League Qualifying series events in 2017 and a spot into all international QS 10,000 prime events. He'll be doing a handful of those, which will take place in new waters around the world.
In addition to all these accomplishments, Eli also won the 2016 BJJ NAGA Championship at the 160lb No-Gi expert division! It's been quite the year for our esteemed athlete, but this goes to show that he is nowhere near done in what more he'll be able to share with the world. No time or talent wasted, just the pure joy and excitement of spreading Aloha throughout Eli's career!
