Nicol "Nip" grew up on the West Coast surfing Melkbosstrand and Derdesteen as a 12 year old. He quickly fell in love with he's homespot "Tube Wave" in Melkbosstrand. Now almost 28 years on you will still see him in the water when the waves are firing, pulling in the barrel or trying to hit the lip as hard as possible!
Flying Fish was born about two years ago in 2012. Before this he was shaping boards for himself but as time marched on it quickly became an obsession to shape boards as much as possible. Today he still strives to deliver quality boards finished to perfection and to see the stoked happy customers faces when they get a new board.
