Interview with Pro Surfer Nate Dorman

How long have you been surfing?
ND: I’m 23 now, so about 13 years now. My dad’s from South Carolina and surfs too so I grew up around surfing.
You’ve been to this event for a few years now, what do you think of this year’s US open of Surfing?
ND: Well it was my first time actually competing and it’s been a great experience overall surfing with the best guys out there. I’d say the coolest and most fun part is meeting people from all over the world and developing friendships. I’m Honored to have had a spot in trials and excited to learn from the contest and take it with me to the next.
Do you have a favorite Kreedom shade?
ND: I actually do! I recently got the the Distinct shade with the Bronze lens I’ve been wearing a lot.
What’s next for you with Surfing?
ND: I’m in Huntington for a few more weeks, but after that I have 2 Qualifying series towards home in NC and Virginia in the Outer banks. I’m excited to have my dad coming with me to those.
