Zack Boyd

Big wave shredder and all round great guy!

Zack has been quietly making his mark on surf kayaking at a competitive level for around 5 years now, and he has certainly made an impression! Based near Santa Cruz in California, he is constantly pushing the boundaries of what's possible in big waves, surfing breaks like Ocean Beach, Steamer Lane, and Moss Landing! This paired with his enthusiasm for the sport, and great personality made him the perfect match for the Hobson Kayaks Team! 

Where are you from?

California born and raised, I grew up in the Sacramento River Delta, went to school in Santa Barbara and now live around the Santa Cruz area.
