VIDEO: 12-Year-Old Jackson Dorian is the Future of Surfing

Say what you will about the evils of nepotism and the unfair advantages of having a parent able to catapult their child into the spotlight, but please don't deny that Jackson Dorian is a rare surf talent. The Hawaiian grommet has certainly benefited from having surf legend Shane Dorian as a father, but you don't start surfing like Jackson without a ton of practice, dedication, and natural talent.
