Colin McNamara is one of the most genuine human beings in the world.  He simply does not know how to be anything other than 100% true to himself and his mission: to live life on his own terms.  Colin is one of New Jersey’s best surfers, a former competitive champion, and current all-around champion.  Colin’s techniques are effective, to say the least.  When Colin talks, everyone listens.  Other than his freak surfing talents, he has a way with words and is known to spin a yarn with other legends around the globe as he offers his unique perspective on all things CMAC.
