Nic Lamb – Surfer And Struggling Actor

Nic Lamb is by far one of the best surfers out at Mavericks in line with Grant “Twiggy” Baker, Greg Long, Peter Mel, Ken “Skindog” Collins and a handful of others.

Nic is from Santa Cruz California who at an early age was picked up by Volcom (through Volcom rep Skinny). Skinny somewhat took Nic under his wing and lead him into the surfing world. Nic’s surfing career never really took off as his surfing (besides at Mavericks) was never really looked at from the surfing media nor did he have much character (never smiled so everyone always thought he was bitter guy).

Now years later and no longer with Volcom Nic moved to Los Angeles to try a new path in acting.

“I don’t have to dress like a surfer to be a surfer. I like wearing Armani tailored suits that’s how I like to dress – I like to look like a million bucks it’s fun. – Nic Lamb

“Get all dressed up like Pee-wee-Herman.” – Nathan Fletcher

Peter Taras (Photo Editor of Surfing Magazine) Selling All His Camera Gear

“Hello Facebook World! I’m selling a bunch of my photo gear. Pass this onto to anyone you may know who’s interested in sports photography or surf photography. I priced most of all this equipment at the very lower level of the used pricing chart even though a lot of my equipment is in better condition than the price dictates. If you’re interested place private message me. Prices are firm. Gunna wait it out for a year and see what happens with cinema cameras. . I got some loner program stuff I can use until then.” – Peter Taras

“This photo editor sold his camera kit, you’ll never believe what he did next!” – Morgan Massen

We’re not sure if this is the beginning of the end for Peter at Surfing Magazine or if he is truly is waiting for cinema cameras. We call BS on Pete! If your waiting for cinema cameras which is fine, but why then would you be selling your lenses that would go on these cameras? (keeping your trusty 50mm?)

Petes’ Camera Gear for Sale:

…and in other “The Enthusiast Network” news (owners of Surfer and Surfing magazine) editor-in-chief Brendon Thomas of Surfer Magazine for the past 5 years has now left to join forces with The Surfers Journal.

So there you have it, a photo editor selling his gear and a editor that has left his position for a magazine that’s not going anywhere…

Ryan Divel (then Rusty surfing team manager) was called the day before the swell hit and was asked by Flea that he needed a tow partner. Ryan showed up super sick then sucked the tow rope into the ski – Flea’s day was over.
