These are just a few of the words bandied about when talking about Mr Bruce Gold.
He's a South African surfing icon with time and a smile for anyone, and everyone.
What's awesome in our eyes is his humble approach to life, awareness of the ocean, and living in his truth.
We salute you. Thanks for keeping it real, Mr Gold.
See his tough yet inspiring journey below. Shot, edited, and produced by Anders Melchior.
"Every time you go surfing. That's what you were born for. That's the peak of your life. And if the waves are really good it's like cream on top of the peak of your life" - Bruce Gold
