Nat Young enlightens us on the “Oxbow Soul and Style” at Puerto Escondido. A far cry from the format of today’s shortboard “cloning” contests, the “Oxbow Soul and Style” is a blast from the past when everyone rode different equipment and had different style based on their board and location they rode them. The contest featured the likes of Joel Tudor, Beau Young, and Bonga Perkins, among others.
