CJ Nelson - In Conversation
CJ recently announced his retirement from competitive surfing. A super successful longboarding career, finishing on a high in 2017 winning the Mexilogfest and the Vans Duct Tape on the same day. CJ has had significant influence and provided a good deal of guidance to the TCSS team over a number of years. He's always been very gracious with his time and advice. An absolute gentleman.
Our good friend, the Noun Collective sat down with CJ in 2015. CJ being incredibly candid, giving some light to the significant journey to reach this point. He has battled with substance abuse and has regrets on the way he treated himself and others. He is now well down the path to making amends. Living clean, consciously and continuing to inspire the next generation.
