Jay Moriarity Foundation premiers tribute video in honor of renowned surf photographer Dave “Nelly” Nelson

Dave “Nelly” is a well known and beloved surf photographer who recently exhibited his most iconic images and creative works for the first time at the Surftech Santa Cruz Showroom. During the November 6, 2015 event – A Night with Nelly– the Jay Moriarity Foundation premiered this tribute video in honor of Nelly. The video features world class surfers such as Matt Rockhold, Austin Smith Ford, Kyle Buthman, Adam Replogle, Josh Mulcoy, and Timmy Hunt as they reflect on Nelly’s dedication, creativity, passion and enthusiasm.

A Night with Nelly drew an impressive crowd and raised funds for the Jay Moriarity Foundation. Nelly’s use of lighting, creative angles and flash photography is legendary in the surfing world. ASJ is proud to feature Nelly’s photography on a regular basis; check out Liquid Imagery in our printed issues or on-line here. Thanks Nelly for all you do for the surfing community!
