While this sort of real-talk suggests a more mature, thoughtful Parker Coffin, rest assured he still laughs at his farts. He spins donuts in the rental car.
When a lady admirer visits Bal for a mid-morning tryst, Parker borrows her phone and takes a couple dozen unflattering selfies with it.
And isn’t this the balance we want to see in our surf stars? The guy that, on one hand, falls asleep on his board bag at the airport, tells the hilarious story about losing his virginity and is so excited to surf that he suits up at the house — in the dark — and puts his clothes on over it? And on the other hand, is the guy that cleans up after himself, opines on what it takes to have a successful relationship and outlines the benefits of prepping for a heat like a samurai preps for battle? Add that to big airs, strong carves and the balls to stand tall — backside — in a big Box tube, and Parker Coffin is, dare we say it, becoming an adult.
