Coming from the groomed rights of Burleigh Heads, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Liam O’Brien’s tube riding and forehand hack are his secret weapons. Until you see his backhand airs. How someone from the land of rights managed to get so polished in lefts too shows just how talented this kid is.

Liam cracked his first WQS win as a teenager in 2017 and will no doubt be gunning for qualification before too long. Follow the fight on his Instagram here.
