Andy Nieblas is a laid-back fellow from California who is about one thing in the surf … fun. He’s also known for his spontaneous and entertaining approach to traditional longboarding, including some of the best footwork in the business. Think Mason Ho with a dash of Lopez but on a traditional log and you’re close to the mark.

Andy also doesn’t mind getting on something shorter when the waves are right, and here, he whips out a Timmy Patterson single-fin and takes to the North Shore, Uluwatu and Desert Point, looking for some unique lines and employing his brand of loose-limbed spontaneity to some of the best waves on the planet.
