“I mean I Iove to land big airs, but I would still rather get stand up barrels”
Bright young thing Liam Turner is a powerful goofyfooter who mixes a love of solid waves, natural tuberiding style and big carves with a progressive aerial act. Liam has been a skater as long as he has surfed, and that, combined with growing up under the wing of Bude’s other famous aerial wizard Reubyn Ash, means his hucks and rotations are state of the art. Having said that, and citing Occy as one of his main surfing inspirations, Liam knows where his surfing priorities lie.
Having left school, Turner’s goal is to dedicate himself to a career in surfing. Winter 2012 sees him hitting Indonesia and Australia to surf and compete and simply become a better surfer.
“I really want to win at least one European or Australian pro junior next year, that’s a big goal.”
With considerable junior competitive success already achieved at home in the UK and a steely determination to improve, you’d bet on Liam to achieve his goals. Backed by his father and traveling companion Lewis, and at home in spinning Indo barrels or mushy Cornwall beach-breaks, the future for Liam Turner is looking bright.
