Pits and Puts with Surfer Kehu Butler

“Kehu Butler may hail from New Zealand, the land of lefts, but you’d never guess that by the regularfoot’s powerful forehand in his new edit,” Ben Waldron writes for SURFER magazine, which features the video, called “Te Kehukehu”, online.

Butler was born in 2000. He is from Mount Maunganui and is New Zealand’s first Red Bull surfer.

In mid-2018, he won the World Surf League Oceania junior qualifying series.
