Imaikalani Devault is a name you need to know.
He’s one of America’s most well-rounded, stylish surfers under 20, and while he may not have the name recognition yet, he’s widely respected by his peers. So much so that he was voted into the top 5 for Most Underrated in SURFING Magazine’s Peer Poll, which will come out later this month.
Imai and filmmaker Marcus Chambers used the ’15/’16 winter to document Imai’s surfing growth. Having filled out during his late teen years, Imai is now able to handle waves of size and consequence with a powerful rail game, all without losing his technical ability above and below the lip. We think you’ll find this video to be a proper introduction to one of your new favorite surfers.
