Surfer Grant Noble Playlist & Interview Last Updated: Feb 24 2022
I grew up in Southern California where the waves were on the smaller side. These small waves drew me to riding longboards & alternative crafts to catch more waves and have more fun.
Born and raised: Costa Mesa, California
Based now: Huntington Beach, California
What do you like about where you live now?
My zone in HB is epic. Everything is close by. Family, Waves, Skateparks, Mountains, etc.
When and how did you start surfing?
My first waves were in Hawaii with my mom at the age of 3. I would surf on and off throughout the years but really started taking it serious when I was 14-16.
Where is your go-to surf spot?
Please tell us about the surfboard you usually ride. Brand, shaper, dimensions, fin setup, etc.
I have been shaping 90% of my boards the last few years. My go-to longboard is a 9’6, piggy shape which the wide point is pulled back and has a narrow nose.
For riding a shortboard around town, I have the twin fin bug. 5’3 Fish based off the Lis Fish template.
