"The round house cut back well excuted is a statement of class. It acknowledges that the surfer understands style . Only a few surfers of each generation could be identified by this signature maneuver.

Tom Curren, MP, Joel Parkinson, Shane Powell, Pancho Sullivan, Richard Cram and Matt Archibald to name but a few.

The contemporary master of this art would be Conner Coffin. He threads power, precision and grace to be the fundamental foundation of his surfing.

It is this blend that becomes the fabric of flow that makes surfing beautiful!
A little bit challenging to judge in subjective format of competitive surfing!"

Some footage of Connor Coffin at J Bay riding a Black Beauty is nice watching
Why do people say "grow some balls"? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.

He’s one of the more stylish guys on the tour IMO.

None of this arms flapping about stuff and heaps of little jinking turns.

Could be a real winter swell on the way next weekend. It's got potential to break banks!

Fcuk all it’s gotta do is move the fetch 400 nm east
