The Seventhwave Most Outstanding Surfer Award (MOSA) had another first recently, with the award being taken out by Xavier Campbell at the 2012 Canterbury Champs. The 13-year-old's outstanding surfing—noticeably improved and honed through the summer season—makes Xavier our youngest winner, and highlights the depth of skill coming up through the South Island ranks.
Indeed, Xavier had to fight of a host of other groms nipping at his heels for the award, especially Nick Takarama and Jack Wilson. These guys have obviously been practicing, and a friendly competitive rivalry has seen the overall level of youth surfing develop in leaps and bounds.
Seventhwave has always supported up-and-coming groms, so we're stoked to see Xavier take out MOSA #3. Will it be another grom at the Nationals in Dunedin this weekend?
