Nat Young Surfboards

Nat Young has lived the surfing life for almost half a century. He is recognized as one of the great surfers in the history of the sport. His motto is and always has been to ” make it a beautiful life ” he believes you have only one chance and you had better make it a good one. Nat was an integral part in the redesigning of the longboard in the late 60s and a co-founder of the longboard renaissance in the early 80s. The four times World Champion still lives his life totally devoted to riding waves, surfing either a long or short board at every opportunity he gets.

    Moonlight Glassing has been located in north San Diego county in southern California since 1979. Nat shaped a lot of boards there in the early 80’s. I had a Nat quad with that girl logo when I was 13 which was rad.
    You can see what Moonlight has been up to on my blog

    Hey mate,
    would you ever consider selling this board?
    Also, who do you use to ship boards between OZ and the States?
    Please let me know at:
    I’ll send you a few pics of my boards too if you want.
