When our friends Dewey and Stephanie Nicks moved from LA to Carpinteria, CA (just south of Santa Barbara) with their 7-year-old twins, George and Madeline, they enrolled the kids in the Surf Happens surf camp. That’s when they started their surfers’ breakfast ritual of eggs and beans (pinto or black) in a tortilla. Sour cream, cheese, avocado, and hot sauce, or anything else you have in the pantry or refrigerator, are optional. “It’s a protein-packed, healthy breakfast that the real surfers we used to hang out with on the Roxy and Quiksilver shoots would eat,” says Stephanie. It so happens that Dewey is an amazing photographer who shoots for Roxy and Quiksilver, The New York Times, among others. We are lucky to have these pictures that Dewey took of George eating his surfer breakfast.
