The Inertia

Nate Florence is on a mission as of late. It’s a mission to surf a whole pile of extremely sketchy waves all over the world. He’s been traveling as the swells dictate, watching the forecasts with a keen eye, hand on the credit card to book flights at a moment’s notice. It’s the Slab Tour.

He’s doing it all relatively soon after breaking his back at Jaws, but he appears to be back to 100 percent. And what is a slab tour without the mother of all slabs? Shipstern Bluff is a place that many would actively run from. But not Nate. Nate is sprinting full steam into it.


Only the best. We promise.
