Professional surfers and photography fans gathered at the Reef Bar & Resturant to watch the debut of Kyle Buthmans Brainwork Doc starring Dave “Nelly” Nelson. Nelly has been a staple in the surf community, both in the water and behind the lens for several decades and his loyalty to the Santa Cruz surf scene was evident by the sheer amount of support shown for his endeavors. Nelly is a true waterman and a family man and well deserving of his own movie. It was great to hang with Nelly on the other side of the lens for an evening.
