Conner Coffin is not a grommet. Sure he’s only 16, sun-bleached, and surfs so much that the majority of Santa Barbara’s dolphin population recognize him. But he doesn’t foam at the mouth when talking about the waves. It’s not his style. He smiles. He thinks. He blogs. He’s a grounded young earthling.

And he’s charging.

A couple days were real sick, but then we ended up getting some funk wind and junk swell for a few days straight, which kind of put a damper on the fun.
