Brainwork With Dave “Nelly” Nelson

Sometimes, getting a deeper look into some personality and a storyline is a pleasant tangent from the day-to-day internet smorgasbord of surf-porn web clips – like a breath of fresh air. Here, we have surfer and filmmaker Kyle Buthman’s Brainwork series, featuring none other than legendary Santa Cruz surf photographer (and SURFING Magazine contributor) Dave “Nelly” Nelson. Enjoy the ride that is Nelly’s journey into photography and the twist and turns that have led him to the extraordinary life he lives today.
