Noah Collins in the South Bay Surf Series

Everyone involved with the South Bay High School Surf League is talking about Noah Collins. They say the Mira Costa High freshman is better than Costa alum Dayton Silva, currently the number one ranked college surfer in the NSSA. He’s being compared to Palos Verdes High alum Alex Gray, an alternate to this year’s Quiksilver Eddie Aikau Big Wave Invitational.

At 5-foot-4, 120 pounds, the 15-year-old goofy-footer looks like Hawaiian pro Derek Ho. Collins lives in Manhattan Beach and surfs everyday, no matter what the waves are like. His favorite local spots are 26th Street and Rosecrans where he and fellow Costa team members Cody Stamos, Kyle Brown and Wyatt Boyd work on their progressive styles.Collins rides 5-foot-3 and 5-foot-5 surfboards made by Roberts in Ventura. He’s already sponsored by Body Glove, Spyder, Free Style Watches, Sanuk Shoes, Waterman’s Sun Screen, Sector 9 Skateboards, Waxy Wax and Dakine.
