In this clip, Nic Von Rupp isn’t out chasing the usual giants, but instead having a fun sesh with the crew at Portugal’s famous point break Ericeira.
Afterward, Nic was kind enough to sit down and answer a few questions that his fans had sent in.
Although it might not seem like it, there’s a lot of work involved in being a successful professional surfer beyond just showing up and paddling out.
Appearing at sponsor events, doing interviews, keeping an active media presence, and yes, interacting with your fan base are all hugely important parts of the process. Hard to believe but there are many who can’t really grasp this concept.
Enjoy the this candid window into Nic’s life and a small part of a true professional doing work.
Oh, but no texting while driving Nic!
