Nathan Fletcher’s status as one of the most pioneering surfers to ever do it, is widely agreed upon by anybody who knows anything about surfing. Hailing from one of surfing’s most legendary families, Nathan had a lot to live up to, and he’s shattered every expectation (along with multiple bones) on his way to becoming a surf star — and he’s nowhere close to being done. There are very few surfers on the planet who can surf with a progressive skate style approach one day, then ride the world’s heaviest, death-defying waves the next. Nathan is one of the few who do this and do it well.
Nathan never needed a surf contest to prove his worth. He’s taunted death while surfing the Code Red day at Teahupo’o, he was a professional snowboarder and professional motocross racer, he’s played in heavy metal bands, he’s directed surf flicks, skated more parks around the world than just about anybody. Nathan is a secret surf analyst, always aware and perceptive of his surroundings, and always ready to drop historical knowledge, priceless advice, a witty comment, or a sincere question. Nathan Fletcher is our oracle.
