Live Oak >> Santa Cruz big-wave surfer Ken “Skindog” Collins was ticketed on suspicion of misdemeanor battery at The Hook in January after he pushed a 42-year-old Los Gatos surfer, Santa Cruz County sheriff’s deputies said Wednesday.

Collins, 47, was surfing at the popular spot near 41st Avenue and East Cliff Drive the evening of Jan. 8 when he “dropped in” on the Los Gatos man and got in his way, said Lt. Kelly Kent. Collins and the other man argued in the surf, and Collins grabbed the man by his shoulders and pushed him in the water, deputies said.

The surf was about 1 to 2 feet, according to Surfline.com. Collins and the other man started arguing again near East Cliff Drive, where Collins allegedly grabbed the man’s shirt or sweatshirt and stretched it out. Deputies arrived about 6:10 p.m., saw the stretched clothing and ticketed Collins.

No one was injured.

Collins’ booking photo circulated online Wednesday because he was photographed and fingerprinted at Santa Cruz County Jail as a requirement of his upcoming arraignment, authorities said. The photo appeared on MugshotsSantaCruz.com, although deputies said it’s unclear how the photos are transferred from the jail to that private website.

Collins is an invitee to the Titans of Mavericks surf contest and a long time big-wave competitor. He has been an activist against pollution and improperly discarded syringes at illegal campsites in Santa Cruz County in recent years, often speaking at Santa Cruz Council meetings.

In May 2013, a video circulated online of Collins arguing with a homeless man at an illegal campsite.

Kent, of the Sheriff’s Office, said tensions sometimes rise at The Hook, which is often crowded with surfing novices.

“We’ve gone to fights there before,” he said.

Big-wave surfer Ken “Skindog” Collins was allegedly charged on suspicion of misdemeanor battery at the Hook in Santa Cruz last month after getting into a scuffle in the water with a 42-year-old Los Gatos surfer. According to Santa Cruz Sentinel, the incident occurred on the evening of January 8th when Skindog dropped in on the Los Gatos surfer. When the other man argued, Collins “grabbed the man by his shoulder and pushed him in the water,” said local authorities. After the incident in the water, Collins and the other man started arguing again near East Cliff Drive, where Collins allegedly “grabbed the man’s shirt or sweatshirt and stretched it out.” Shortly after, local authorities arrived, saw the stretched clothing, and ticketed Collins.

While this incident may be meaningful in addressing the variety of issues associated with localism and violence, the specific details in this situation are too unclear to cast judgements beyond speculation.

Big wave surfer dropping in on a guy on a 2 foot wave then fighting him over it (not to mention the homeless guy)...a complete douche and embarrassment to the sport. He lost control and got exactly what he deserves!

Skindog was surfing the Hook? That's pathetic.

It's a great little wave but it's obviously not the place you go for peaceful reflection on the beauty of nature. My strategy was to get there around 10 a.m. after the first shift headed off to work and be out of the water by noon before the lunchtime crowd. Best thing to do if you're not down for hassling is sit on the shoulder and get thirds after the guy on the peak and the burner get into a fight...

Not sure how much it happens in 'normal' fights but in the NHL, pull jersey over head -> bludgeon head appears to be a common strategy.
