About me

Location Santa Cruz, California
Introduction Resides: Santa Cruz, CA Sponsors: O'Neill, Vans, Stretch Surfboards Other interests: Hooking big fish and golfing Jason "Ratboy" Collins is one of the original nonconformists. He was able to take what Christian Fletcher did before him and dominate the air surfing world in the mid nineties. Ratboy took the air surfing community on his back and progressed it to the next level using creativity and style. Double grabs, reverses, three sixty airs and an entire gamut of technicalities that up to this point didn't exist. He landed a backside air three-sixty at the Coldwater Classic, when other competitors were doing top turns and roundo's thinking they were ripping. By landing that air, Ratboy defined his persona in the surfing world. From that point forward his status grew. He dominated air shows, graced magazine covers, was featured in his own video, and has pro model boards, which resulted in Rat becoming one of the most popular surfers to ever come out of Santa Cruz.
