Cam Richards of Pawleys Island is only 15 years old and has already won several surfing titles including 6 National Scholastic Surfing Association East Coast Champion trophies.
Mister Richards is no newb when it comes to winning surf competitions. According to a post from Carolina Live, at the age of 10, Richards became the youngest surfer in the world to win prize money at a sanctioned pro surfing event.
With a three-year, six figure sponsorship from Billabong surfboards, plenty of wins to his name and prize money that allows him to travel the globe and shred waves from Bali to France -- I think it's safe to say this is just the beginning of Cam Richards' reign.
