From a family of world-renowned surfers, Nathan Fletcher was fated to push limits. His fire for big waves and airs have established him as a leading innovator within the sport. In this episode, he discusses the secrets to aging gracefully as a professional athlete, what drives him in heavy water, how motocross and skating have helped him assess both pain and risk, and the precarious tension between living in the moment and finding who you are.
