Markus Kleveland, Cody Warble, Brock Crouch, Jack Herald. Remember those names. Most of these man-children are what could be dangerously called pre-teens, but we’ll just call them way too frickin’ good for their age, the rats.
Volcom took four of their most promising übergrom division – Norwegian Markus Kleveland and American kids Cody Warble, Brock Crouch and Jack Herald – to what looks like a private park for spring break and let them loose – no assembly, no homework, just straight up shredding. Back 7s and Rodeos on man sized jumps? No biggie.
And to think it only seems like yesterday when we were being blown away by the likes of Shaun White, Mikkel Bang and Fredrik Austbo at similar ages.
Wanna compare? Well, alrighty then…
SHAUN WHITE (11) – TB9
MIKKEL BANG (13), LUKE MITRANI (12) & FREDRIK AUSTBO (14) – WHITE BALANCE
Will any of these kids go on to reach the heights of those three? Don’t bet against it…
