A 16 year old from Rio de Janiero, Brazil, Nathan Herada nicknamed ‘Hurricane’ is no stranger to performance surfing. “The waves in Rio are fast and heavy, which is why I developed a love for ‘power surfing’. My favorite maneuvers are laybacks and aerials, but I also love to ‘go for it’ in a critical end section.”

Born into a family of surfers and spending time surfing waves around the world, Nathan is experienced in free surfing & competition and will be someone we’ll enjoy watching for years to come.
