In Kaius Potter’s video titled ‘Storm’, Australian surfer Soli Bailey grabs his passport and prepares to charge the large swell ahead of him at P-Pass in Micronesia. Bailey has logged many hours in the water and through all of his hard work, has emerged with the impeccable ability to sit deep and stand straight up inside the barrel. Surfing the stormy weather at P-Pass, Bailey pulls into more barrels in one session than most do in their lifetime.
The 18-year-old started surfing Byron Bay at the age of 2-years-old and shortly after learned that he aspired to pursue a career in the sport. Earlier this April, Soli Bailey swept the Rangiroa Junior Pro and won the title. With so much competitive success and already posing a threat to the other competitors at such a young age, Soli has a promising future ahead.
