Vans' new short film, Breaking Boundaries, follows Dennis' quest to support Trinidad & Tobago's youth through surfing.

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.
