Nate Tyler

Nate Tyler

Raised among the towering redwoods and crisp, clean coastal air, Central California’s Nate Tyler was always a different breed of surfer from his citified cohorts to the south. Earthy, artistic and wildly talented, he’s one of the few these days (but not foreign to the HS team) to stray from the comp jersey and forge his career through free surfing. He’s also a sculpter, and creates bespoke commissioned pieces mostly from repurposed metal.
