Watch Conner Coffin Tame El Rincon
Mid-way through the first session at Rincon, it was apparent an edit by Young Wise Tails was being conceived. Conner was on fire. Over the next couple days Conner continued to go ballistic, while Ryan Perry hit record over and over and over again.
Conner has grown into something of a local celebrity around his hometown of Montecito and nearby Santa Barbara. At age 20, he handles it with ease and neglects no one, anywhere, at any time. He's always willing to say hello and chat about recent travels or the past days of waves.
And it's only a matter of time before that same celebrity spreads through the rest of the USA and the world. As you can see from this video, Conner has the traits of many people's future "favorite surfer."
