Another entry into the ever-growing list of freakishly talented young bucks is this Japanese nipper, Ayumu Hirano. Check the 12-year-old Japanese ripper poaching the US Open pipe and frickin’ sending it. As the Burton guys say: if you’re gonna poach the pipe at the Open you’ve gotta follow the unwritten rule – GO BIG. Ayumu Hirano certainly did.
This kid is going places, believe. We remember seeing a 14-year-old Kazuhiro Kokubo back in the day and Ayumu seems to be on the same track. Remember the name.
