The boy from Narrabeen won the 1991 Cadet Cup when he was only 15 years old. Four years later, he was allowed to compete in the prestigious Rip Curl Pro tournament at Bells Beach, where he beat the world champion, Kelly Slater, in two consecutive heats.

Even Slater, who used to compete against Davidson, has said nice things about him.

“Yesterday, we lost another soldier. #RipChrisDavo. Had a lot of fun fights with this guy. “One of the most naturally talented surfers I’ve ever met,” Slater wrote on Instagram on Sunday.

“He was one of the most stylish surfers this country has ever produced. Mark Windon, the executive director of Surfing NSW, told ABC that Davidson was a “larger-than-life character” with a “prodigious talent” and “as flashy on land as he was in the water.”
