“Radical Humility” a Nathan Fletcher Documentary

Stab Magazine just dropped a new mini documentary on team captain Nathan Fletcher. Filmed and edited by Michael Cukr, the film includes Dane Reynolds and plenty of past/present footage of Nathan that embodies what we all love about surfing and the Fletcher family.

“I did a lot of other things that were gnarly, but in my head I was like, ‘If that’s not gnarly, I don’t know what is,'” said Nathan Fletcher about his Code Red Teahupo’o bomb in 2011. 

Tune into Stab High’s Air Show Saturday September 22nd and catch Nathan in round 5 as well as announcing/judging the Vans Acid Drop Contest from 3:25 – 3:50pm PCT. This will be an all out shit show just before the Air Show final! Don’t miss it!

Initial thoughts/expectations

Bizarre, weird with no rocker, felt weird at first on a high tide session but after two waves the flow came in and the combos came too!

Ride experience:

Works in everything pretty much any conditions, I like how you do airs sometimes and you disappear in the whitewash the board has enough volume to get you in front of the white wash again and complete a maneuver with good flow. That’s my first thought on my first good ride.

 

Strengths: Volume gives you extra pop and it’s fast on rail works really good on rail!

 

Weaknesses: No complaints just like any board loses its spice as I use it more and more but I surf A LOT!!

 

Summary Helps you with rhythm and flow between rail turns, it’s fast, maintains!!!
