20 Under 20: Conner Coffin

 Conner Coffin is Santa Barbara inside and out. On his list of favorite surfers are Tom Curren and Bobby Martinez. His local spot is Rincon. He rides for Channel Islands and he is a smooth surfing, young regular footer with huge aspirations. Conner is only 14 but has already racked up a national title and a conference series win, not to mention a list of big time sponsors. His ultimate goal is to qualify for the WCT.  With the widespread SB support Conner has, a few more years in California’s high quality wave zone, and some travel time, this goal will be very attainable.
