Nic Hernandez

At the ripe, old age of 10 and no taller than four feet, Nic’s surfing is polished and well exceeds his age. Growing up on the Eastside of Santa Cruz has allowed little H’dez to fine tune his skills. His bottom turns, top turns and combinations flow together so well that the only thing more mind blowing than the seamlessness of his surfing is how effortless it looks. With a supportive family, a quiver of Xanadu’s and energy befitting his age, Hernandez is enjoying gromhood but with a conscious eye on the future. Granted, he’s got a lot of obstacles to overcome before he gets there, but at 10 years old, Nic Hernandez has all the necessary tools to make it BIG in surfing.
