12 Mile North, Docuplay Invitation, February 2012

12 Miles North is a documentary film by Richard Yelland that tells the inspiring and tragic story of Nick Gabaldon (1927–1951), the first documented surfer of African American and Mexican descent. A pioneering black Californian and American who died in the bloom of his manhood in a watery death, Gabaldon’s legacy has inspired many surfers of color and otherwise to consider him as a role model. His passion, athleticism, discipline, love and respect for the ocean live on as the quintessential qualities of the California surfer.
