When a young Brazillian named Daniel Rocha appeared on the bodyboard scene in the 90′s he earnt the knickname Peanut. Peanut was soon hailed as a Supergrom as he ripped for a kid his age and he was also being schooled by Tamega who took him under his wing. Daniel was  hailed as a future World Champ. After years following the Pro Tour he didnt take the number 1 spot but his record was up there. One of his finest results was in ’98 when he placed 3rd at Pipe. This shot of Peanut was taken in ’96 in Reuniun Island by Stroh.
