ISA World Juniors Team Points Final Standings:
1. Dax McGill wins Gold for the girls 16 and under! Dax McGill, 14, is the youngest member of Team Hawaii. Hailing from the North Shore of Oahu, Dax came in to her maiden ISA as the reigning 14 and under, US National Champion. An aggressive competitor in and out of the water, Dax is also an accomplished Vert and Bowl skater. Dax's never-ending energy kept Team Hawaii's spirits high to say the least.
2. Kalani David, 14, wins Gold for the boys 16 and under! While many kids his age watch too much TV, Kalani is out in the ocean or at the skate park putting his elders to shame. Charging the skate bowl with reckless abandonment, surfing his brains out and riding his dirt bike wide open, he's got plenty raw talent and more than a few good tricks for a 14-year old. But wait 'til he turns 16; we're sure he's got a few more surprises still up his sleeve.
