Eli Olson…there is nothing bad you can say about the guy! Born and raised on the North Shore of Oahu and like many of his close friends (Koa Rothman, Nathan Florence, John Florence 2 x World Champion and Kiron Jabour) he has finally begun to stich his name into the surfing world. However, Eli did not always have a recognizable name in surfing. In fact, Eli spent many years struggling for sponsorship and grinding him self to the point in which many athletes would throw in the towel, but that’s not Eli’s style!! Aside from surfing he has also set out to create an additional path that parallels his surfing ability, Jiu-Jitsu!!
Eli has spent the last decade morphing himself into a brown belt beast, which seems to translate seamlessly into his surfing, explosive and hard charging. This winter Eli has already thrown himself over the ledge of a massive outer reef bomb at Log Cabins during a solo session, along with trips to Mavericks and Jaws chasing down the biggest surf on the planet!! The dude is no joke!
I had the pleasure of growing up with Eli and spent many years with him terrorizing the North Shore and watched him transform from a little grom, to the humble beast that he is today. It has been amazing to watch this guy evolve over the years. Eli currently holds a 2017 WSL (world surf league regional championship), along with a WSL win at Ala Moana bowls, a 2017 NAGA (North America Grappling Association) championship belt in the pro division and a runner-up finish in the 2018 NAGA championship.
I recently spoke with Eli after we signed him and asked what his biggest application of CBD will be for 2019 and beyond…
Eli Olson: Im just looking to take my game to a whole new level!! And on that note we would like to officially welcome Eli Olson to the NanoCraft CBD team.
