First & Last: Conner Coffin Is Not An Air Guy
A day in the life of California’s sequoia-legged prince.
We all have certain strengths in life.
Wolves can howl like a sonuvabitch. Fish swim like they were divinely purposed to do so. Conner Coffin adjusts wave faces to look like that of Sloth in the Goonies.
But the existence of strengths inherently implies the existence of weaknesses.
Wolves never eat their veggies. Fish can’t climb a tree to save their lives. Conner Coffin is not an air guy.
But you know what? That’s okay. In fact, it’s necessary. And there’s nothing more admirable in this life than to recognize one’s own weaknesses, accept them, and most importantly make sure your strengths render them insignificant.
Like if Godzilla had a micropenis — you think anybody whose city is getting destroyed has the gull to call him out on that? Of course not! They’re too busy running for their lives, as do those who find themselves in the wake of Connor’s Hiroshima hacks.
In this episode of First & Last we follow Conner through a day of picking beets, surfing, and talking about surfing.
