Look out world- Wiley is nine now.

I have always been awed by this young boy’s gumption, lack of fear and complete dedication to windsurfing, but these new photos just blow my mind. Wiley Daniels who lives on Oahu and that means he does not get to sail very often is simply ripping off the charts. Here he is photographed at Toes on the south side by his friend and neighbor Kimo Brown. There is no doubt about where he is on the wave, and how to hit the lip at just the right time to get maximum air on his off the lip. This knowledge must have come hard wired into his DNA, because this is not as easy as he makes it look. And then there is the fear factor. It simply does not seem to be part of his emotions. Fearless.

Look for more action as he attends the AWT Maui event next month.
