In the early 90’s, a photograph of a young boy dropping in on a huge unknown wave made the cover of Surfing Life. The photograph became iconic.

20 years later, the Fijian surfer the world had never heard of, earned the chance to compete against the best surfer the world has ever seen. This is his story.

At Cloudbreak, now rated by many as the best wave in the World, local boatman, Isei Tokovou won a wildcard entry into the Volcom Fiji Pro World Championship, with more than $400,000 in prize money.

Surfing his home-­‐break with hand-­‐me-­‐down boards and without a trainer or support team, Isei carries the hopes of a nation into competition.
