When we think further we go further.

In Santa Monica in the 1940s Nick Gabaldon, an African American, learned to surf at a segregated beach called ‘The Inkwell’. Everyday he defied convention and paddled 12 miles north to Malibu and the best waves. Gabaldon pursued his passion to an extent most would never consider.

His determination overcame not only societal obstacles but stroke after shoulder-burning stroke for 12 miles of open sea. We salute Nick Gabaldon.

We stand by never accepting mediocrity. Never sitting back on ones laurels. Paying attention to the quiet, niggling voice in your head that says it doesn’t feel right, it could be better.

We salute going as far as you think you can, then going 12 miles more.
