||It’s been 5 years since Kei claimed an Open win. His last win came in the 2009 National Mini Grom final and he was hungry to break down the barrier. In chest high peaks at the HB Open, he took a dramatic semifinal win on a buzzer beater. Advancing to the final, he got the job done triumphing in the man-on-man showdown against Noah Collins. Fave thing about HB:“The inside air section.” Local spot: Lowers. Shred crew: Griffin & the Dands. Fave surfer: John John. Goal: Not to lose in round 1 again!
