Catching up With Nate Yeomans

What have you been up to these last few months?
Well, I’ve been on the road since February. Started off in Hawaii for that pipe contest, then I was off to Oz, New Zealand, Bali for the Rusty team shoot, Brazil, Lowers and I just came back from Portugal. Next stop, is Costa Rica to shoot some more surfing for Rusty’s Single Life?

Tell us a little bit about the Single Life?
It’s a surf movie that’s blending modern surfing on retro single fins. I’ve seen Kerr pull some mental maneuvers on a single fin.

Have any crazy stories from the road?
Yeah, I got one from Brazil. So I was just chillin’ drinking my acai drink and this lifeguard in a speedo body slams this kid, that looked like he was 16, right on his head like 5 feet from me. It was crazy cause the kid was bleeding but no one around even took a second look. Grom abuse!

Who have you been traveling around with?
Pat Gudauskas, Tanner Gudauskas, Dylan Graves, Austin Ware, Damien Hobgood, and Gabe Kling. Good fun on the road with those guys.

Any advice for the surfer trying to turn Pro?
Yeah, it's a dog eat dog contest mentality out there. If you think your gonna cruise through the comps, you'll learn really quick that it takes more to make it. So, learn from your losses and appreciate the wins.
