Nathan was surfing before he could swim with his Dad and his older brother all around Southern California, but really found his favorite waves in the Sunset Cliffs area where his dad grew up. This area has any wave a young kid could dream of from reef breaks to beaches and jetties. His passion for surfing and the Ocean was immediate and he starting winning contests right away starting at 4 years of age. Nathan shreds everything from short boards to long boards and anything in between, but has found a real resonance in the traditional side of surfing. He has gained the respect of surfers young and old around the world with his quiet but, serious nature. Nate plans to keep traveling the world in search of perfect waves, a good laugh, and meeting new people.
