Nate is friendly, passionate and fun guy. Told us many stories about Hawaiian culture. And the shocking part is that nobody has fallen from SUP during the tour though it was our first experience riding the SUPs. All thanks to Nate's instructions.

Thanks for listening to me talk about my passion and gratitude for the priceless connection between Portuguese and Hawaiian culture. There would be no Ukulele without the Portuguese and there would be no surfing without the Hawaiians. Keep Paddling;)
