Nat Young’s Run Of Wins
Nat Young has officially arrived on the radar as one of the top up and comers to watch out for. The Santa Cruz goofyfooter strung together some major victories in 2008; in June he thwarted the top juniors in the NSSA Nationals to take the coveted Open Men’s division, then he again took down many of the same faces at the Rip Curl GromSearch National Finals. He also mixed in a Jr. Pro win this summer at the Ponto Classic, just to spice things up a bit. But hands down the biggest victory for Nat came at the O’Neill Coldwater Classic WQS event on his home turf at Steamer Lane. At only 17, Nat’s future is bright, and 2008 will be the year he’ll look back on as setting the tone for the rest of his career.
