NATHAN ADAMS is part of a young generation of surfers who seem to be continually redefining what traditional logging is...his unique wave approach is perfect for the super-flat boards he rides. you’ll regularly find him noseriding through sections at san onofre, and church’s. and when he’s done, you’ll find him posted up on a bench or stump strumming his guitar.
