Jason “Ratboy” Collins
Ratboy has been a friend for a long long time, I used to go over to his house on Swift Street back in the day and shoot portraits and hang out…he is all time! His quick-witted heckles are second to none, and he’s good at everything he does.

How did you get the name “Ratboy”?: I got the name when I was young cause I had a really messy room, and I rode old roachy boards all the time … it stuck and I’ve been Ratboy ever since.
What do you like to do when you aren’t surfing?: I like fishing, golfing with my friends, and hanging with my wife Katie. She likes to surf, golf, and fish too, so it’s awesome.
