Good Enough For Taylor?

A few years ago -- actually make that like 15 years ago -- this clip would be the final part in a Taylor Steele vid. Now it's just a YouTube clip with 139 views. My how the times have changed, right? But behind this horrific pop punk song, is a surfer who is showing that American surfing does stand a chance on the world stage for the future. With a dynamic repertoire that goes beyond tail blow, Nat Young is among a new brigade of Americans who bring more than flashy surfing to the table. He's part of a crew of surfers that includes Luke Davis, Kolohe Andino and Conner Coffin, who are showing that patriotism is back in style. Check this clip of Nat Young (but maybe turn down the volume or pick your favorite song to put it along to instead) and let us know what you think about America's chances against Australia and Brazil are for the future in the world arena. And stay tuned for the ultimate square off between Oz and the US and A in SURFING Magazine and soon.
