Noah Cohen: A Conversation Between a Pro Surfer and a Pro CERB’er

August 10, 2020

In this episode, Derik Hyatt chats with Canadian Pro Surfer and star of the film Transition, Noah Cohen.  Tune in to hear about Noah’s childhood growing up in Tofino during the tense times of hippies versus the logging industry and being able to surf after school when most kids were going home to watch cartoons.  Learn about the role fitness plays in Noah’s surfing, the influence that Pete Devries and both Raph and Sepp Bruhwiler have played in his career, wacky adventures in driving through a snow storm with Larry Cavero, must-see classic surf films and much more!  To read Noah’s full bio, checkout this article by Rolling Vibes.
