Pro surfer Conner Coffin has always had a passion for the ocean. Growing up in Santa Barbara, California, Coffin started surfing when he was in kindergarten. Throughout the years, he developed a very smooth, clean and powerful surfing style. In 2012, he went pro and came in first at the Vans US Open Junior Pro and North Shore Junior Pro events that same year. Now 22 years old, he’s competing around the world while making videos for his website, Young Wise Tails.
While surfing is tough enough, Coffin is always opened to a good challenge. "For me in general, I like to do stuff that is hard. It's motivating trying to get better at something," says Coffin who enjoys playing the guitar. Coffin says that surfing and playing the guitar are "super similar."
