“Nat Young (pictured here) and his mom Rosie are the ultimate hosts here every year during the Cold Water Classic,” says photog James ‘Jimmicane’ Wilson. “Staying at the house right now is Mitch Crews, Balaram Stack, Michael Dunphy, Sage Erickson and Jesse Mendez. He lives a few blocks away from Steamer Lane and has a basketball hoop in the backyard. It’s the perfect place to hang when waiting for the comp to start and anytime it’s not going on Nat takes us to one of the other waves around Santa Cruz.”
What a host, right? Nat can blaze in the soup, too. After winning his round one heat at the Cold Water Classic yesterday, here he is practicing for his round two match-up. Reckon local knowledge is gonna see him into the event’s juicy bits?
