PSH vient de prendre le jeune pro SUPeur Slater Trout dans son team.

Après s'être fait remarquer aussi bien dans des épreuves de vagues telles que le Duke's Ocean Fest qui à lieu tous les mois d'Aout à Hawaii, que sur des courses comme la Battle Of the Paddle où il a terminé 2ème cette année, il n'y a plus aucun doute sur le fait que ce jeune SUPeur de 14 ans est en train de devenir une figure emblèmatique du SUP.
