Parker Coffin is a highly intelligent if exceedingly simple man.
"Give me food, sex, and surfing, and I'm set for life," he says. Parker has always been regarded as the fun-loving and less serious of the Coffin bros.
His surfing, however, is nothing to laugh at. Parker surfs big waves, small waves, frontside and blindside with devastating style, power, and agility. Which is to say, the brothers' divergent competitive trajectories have nothing to do with ability. In the clip above, Parker goes onto to explain the robust influence of Bobby Martinez, how he's recently come to adore twin-fins, and why tow-ats shouldn't be taboo.
