WATCH: Scotland and Nic Von Rupp Part I

By on

Nic Von Rupp arrives in Scotland for a pumping swell from earlier this year. In fact, Von Rupp has a bit of an affinity for the UK's far north, having been there 10-years ago and copping a bit of a brutal wipeout – but had always planned to come back. Also, what you might not know is that Nic's into the landscape and diversity that Scotland can offer up.

Oh and the surf? Yeah, it's good. Grinding slabs across a super shallow reef. And look, this is just part 1 of the Von Froth's mission into Scotland. The set up work, the prelude – because what's coming next in part 2 is something you unmissable. Plus, by then, we'll have an interview with Nic about the mission and returning to that wave he tried to score a decade or so ago. Stay tuned, because that'll be dropping in a couple weeks' time.

We won't give it away, but here's one of Nic's waves from part II. The best thing? It's nowhere near the biggest or heaviest wave surfed this session. Stay tuned!
