Griffin Colapinto Takes Surfing America U18 Title
Billabong Team Rider Griffin Colapinto takes the title at Lowers Trestles.
Griffin Colapinto is a 16-year-old who's grown a lot in the past year, not only physically but competitively and talent wise as well. Griffin started his U18 title campaign this past week with polished and progressive surfing, going head to head with some of the best U18 surfers in the country at Lowers Trestles. By Saturday it was clear that Griffin was the man to beat, having used his local knowledge and sheer talent to put himself at the head of the pack. In the final, Griff took control and never looked back. Congrats to Griffin on his win and make sure to look out for him as his career begins to blow up!
