Ken "Skindog" Collins is a true pioneer in the Santa Cruz & Mavericks surf community. One of the most talented surfers to hail from SC, Skinny can surf it all, from 2 feet to 50. From cover shots to spreads, movie segments, awards for huge Puerto bombs, and invites to the most exclusive big wave events in the world, Skinny is world class.
Not content with mastering one craft, Ken has turned his sites on the lack of media being produced by actual big wave surfers and is excited to share his world from the inside out. Along the way he also developed a very successful sales agency with his wife, Annouschka, repping Volcom exclusively.
What does Skinny love about the surf game? “There so much to love about it. I really like the freedom. You can cruise or go crazy. You can surf alone or with friends. Guys and girls, rain or shine, day or night, young or old—the list goes on. Surfing is a life-long journey. I'm just getting my daughter started.” His biggest inspiration is the Santa Cruz surf community. “This is Surf City and there are many good surfers, more so than any other city. And that stokes me out. We have so many surfers to look up to and learn from.” Ken is nominated for “Monster Paddle” at the 2012 Billabong Global Big Wave Awards.
