When I met Nate a few years ago, he was just some little punk who wanted some crap to buy. Ya know, “Hey, umm, do you, like, maybe, umm, have a board to sell, maybe?” I don’t know how it happened but we started skating together a lot one summer. He would take the bus or bum a ride to our house and camp out, every weekend, a lot of the time even longer. He was okay, though.
Nate is a little punk and sort of a geek! I feel like he’s my little brother, but also a pretty good friend. Nate dreams one day of marrying Christina Aguilera and becoming the store manager at Zuka Juice. I wish you all the luck in the world, Nate. He’s pretty good at snowboarding, too; you should check out his section in The Revival. Peace.–Jeremy Jones
Jeremy: Do you have any other dreams besides being a pro snowboarder?
Nate: Yeah, hooking up with Christina Aguilera.
You recently picked up a girlfriend for the first time really. How does that feel?
Her name is Jillyn. I don’t know if she is my girlfriend or if we are just hanging out.
Do you think it will affect your skating and snowboarding?
No. Is it supposed to?
Were you a nerd in school or did kids like you?
My friends and I were the radest kids in school. Everybody just didn’t realize it.
A bunch of big-name pros know you and think you’re really cool. Is that going to your head at all?
No, because they’re just snowboarders, but if they were big-name supermodels it would be another story.
Do you think you’re dope, Nate?
No, I don’t smoke dope.
As dope as Smolik?
Thank some kids you know for stuff and crap, and free stuff and whatever else.
