Grant Noble has talent falling out of his pockets.
A self-described “desert rat kid” that grew up riding dirt bikes, Grant discovered surfing much later than you’d probably guess after watching the edit above. He surfs like an ocean baby but it wasn’t until around 14 that Grant donned the fibreglass and became a regular in lineups around Newport.
After just three years on a longboard, in 2019 Grant copped an invite to compete in Joel Tudor’s coveted longboard event, the Duct Tape Invitational. He placed 13th but the credibility alone from the invite to this calibre of an event is a win in itself.
At 23, Grant’s life consists of surfing when there are waves, longboarding when there’s less, and skating, shaping, and driving a giant van around town when there’s none. Watch his latest edit above with an intro from Danny Johnson (clip starts at 2:37) and learn a little bit more about Grant below when we quizzed him from his factory in Newport California.
