Colin McPhillips – 3 x World Longboard Champ, SUP Aficionado, All-Board addict & shaper.
Colin, Born April 18, 1975 in Santa Monica, California, began surfing at 5 with the support of his parents and quickly improved amid the winding blue walls of San Clemente, one of SoCal’s most verdant wave gardens. He turned pro at 18. The next year in 1995, he won his first major event at Huntington Beach at the US Open of Surfing, and 4 years later, he secured his best result ever by winning the ASP World title in 1999. He repeated this feat in 2001 & 2002.
By 2012, surfing had not only also provided travel, glory, and support for his family but also expanded into work for both TV and film as a surf stunt double on Baywatch, Beverly Hills 90210, and Chasing Mavericks. Colin McPhillips is still living in San Clemente, competing internationally, and has four children.
“Colin McPhillips is definitely the ‘Mr Nice Guy’ of competitive world-class surfing – and having won three world titles he has nothing left to prove.
His powerful, yet smooth style can be witnessed in every craft he rides be it longboard, shortboard or SUP. Actually, he rides that many different boards I’m not sure how he decides what to ride each day, he is truly an All-Board aficionado. And now that he’s shaping as well it boggles my mind to think of what talent he has yet to show the world in that venture!”

Neil ‘Moonwalker’ Armstrong – Consulting Editor of Pacific Longboarder Magazine (with 14 front covers of the publication to his credit & a dozen or so more with other titles) & roving international photojournalist for SUP and All-Board Publications in Japan, Europe and America.
Moonwalker currently lives between Taiwan, California and Australia but spent his formative schooling years in NZ and the UK – which would account for his absurd, dry and cynical sense of humour. He lives for the thrill of long plane flights, enjoys handing over fistfuls of cash for excess baggage payments (due to an ongoing addiction to expensive camera gear) and has a horrible fetish for airline foods. He uses the guise of surf photojournalism to feed these urges.
Here’s what Clay Feeter, Editor of Standup Journal has to say of Moonwalker’s work;
“Who is Moonwalker?” Are you serious?! Who hasn’t run across this brilliant photojournalist who’s synapses fire faster than a roadrunner’s; the guy is on it! He’s on the water, in the water, up the beach, down the beach… then hiking way back for that mouthwatering point break overview everybody will be talking about 58 years from now. And that’s all before lunch. He’s waxing up for a go-out when the light is washed out at midday – but count on the shutter to be firing as the glow gets low, late in the day towards the ‘magic hour.’ This man delivers beyond expectations.”
