Watch: Nic Von Rupp’s Birthday Bash at Heaving Greenbush

Into the eye of the storm with Nic and Nate Behl.

Bunkered down in the Northern region of the Mentawai Islands, and with a fresh south swell building feathered by North winds, Nic Von Rupp knew there was only one place to be … Greenbush.

Nic Quickly sought out fellow tube hound Nate Behl ­to help plead his case to the boat driver. There was only one problem, they had to leave within the hour and head directly into the path of a tropical storm which, if you’ve ever been in one aboard a small tender, you’ll know is not a very pleasant experience, to say the least.

In the clip, you’ll see that the boat driver doesn’t want to know about it, but a relentless Nic doesn’t take no for an answer and soon they’re out in the storm making a beeline for what would be an epic day of surfing at one of Indo’s heaviest waves.
