Saying Nic von Rupp’s year last year was good would be a tremendous understatement; it was fucking incredible. Nic ticked more surfing boxes in a year than most of us will in our entire surfing lives, and he managed this during “unprecedented times”.
Nic surfed a “best evers” session at Greenbush, scored pumping Macaroni’s, surfed over dry reef at an obscure Scottish slab, got an inane paddle-pit at Nazaré, surfed in the Nazaré big wave comp and got pitted at Portugal’s version of Cape Solander. Those are but a few of Nic’s 2021 exploits.
Nic’s compiled some of his best rides from the year into a highlight reel, and it’s bloody good viewing.
