We ran into these three super-stoked groms—Jett Schilling (12), Rasmus King (10) and Kyuss King (15)— on Sunday, Aug. 23 as they were just finishing up a session at Cottons and Trestles.
Although the waves were small, their smiles were huge as the uber-talented trio made the most of the traditional final weekend of summer break.
“We got some fun ones,” Rasmus said, as he stood waiting for his brother Kyuss and friend Jett to paddle in.
The three have had some good times together this summer honing their skills, Jett said, adding that the King brothers have been staying with him and his family while on their annual summer visit to the city from their home in Australia.
While the start of the school year means back to the classroom for many, these up-and-coming athletes are living the “endless summer” dream. Jett and Kyuss are now in Nicaragua and upon their return next week the King brothers will head home to Oz, where their summer will just be getting started.
