One of the UK's and Europe's brightest prospects, Liam Turner surfing contains all the elements needed for a big career in surfing. The powerful goofyfooter mixes a love of solid waves, natural tuberiding style and big carves with a progressive aerial act. Liam has been a skater as long as he has surfed, and that, combined with growing up under the wing of Bude's other famous aerial wizard Reubyn Ash, means his hucks and rotations are state of the art. Having said that, and citing Occy as one of his main surfing inspirations, Liam knows where his surfing priorities lie. "I mean I Iove to land big airs, but I would still rather get stand up barrels," he says.
Having left school, Turner's goal is to dedicate himself to a career in surfing. The end of 2012 saw him hit the road, traveling to Indonesia and Australia for six months to surf and compete and simply become a better surfer. "I really want to win at least one European or Australian pro junior next year, that's a big goal," he says. With considerable junior competitive success already achieved at home in the UK and a steely determination to improve, you'd bet on Liam to achieve his goals. Backed by his father and traveling companion Lewis, and at home in spinning Indo barrels or mushy Cornwall beachbreaks, the future for Liam Turner is looking bright. Stay tuned.
