Whether its tow-surfing or paddling, Collins tends to stand out on the most fearsome days at Mavericks. He pioneered the Northern California tow-in movement in the late 1990s and was part of a semifinal in the 2000 contest that will go down with the most memorable heats in surfing history. Among the elite at Mavericks, Ken Collins has served as a pillar of that very foundation. Serving as a center piece of the history and future of big wave surfing at Mavericks, Ken Collins is a strong contender for the event.
