PHOTOS: Nate Lawrence
It had been a few days since we'd heard from Nate Lawrence. That's not out of the ordinary or anything, splitting his time between Bali and California, we just assume if he's off the radar, he's either attending a Metallica concert with Christian Fletcher (which happened), or he's off scoring the waves of his life. We don't worry or anything. But after his last sojourn into the jungle, without our sending of him, we knew he was getting waves for himself, instead of shooting photos. turns out he was off getting the waves of his life — which had happened to him during this journey...twice.
After the jump is some proof of the latter. A quick and somewhat grueling jaunt and What Youth's lensman doing some market research for our next journey. Be sure to check out What Youth Issue 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 for more of Nate's incredible photography in large format book, and keep an eye out for him in the lineup. He only goes left and he refuses to surf anywhere a wetsuit is necessary or where it doesn't barrel over sharp coral in solitude. Seriously. Enjoy the spoils of his recent jaunt after the jump. [...]
