I've wanted to write about Nick and add his story to the LEGENDARY SURFERS collection for a long time.
Over the decades since his death, there's been a good deal of folklore added to Nick's history as a surfer. Wanting to get it straight, myself, I've done my own research and this is the result.
I hope Nick's story inspires you as it has many others.
