Drew Kampion interviews the legendary surfer and cannabis advocate
In 2007, surf writer Drew Kampion interviewed World Champion surfing icon Nat Young for The Skate/Surf Issue of Heads Magazine. Their discussion centred on cannabis’ influence on professional sports. Never one to shy away from controversy, Nat was very forthcoming on the role pot played in shaping him as a surfer and a human being. Today, as more professional athletes step forward in support of cannabis as an integral part of competitive sports, let us revisit the wisdom of surf’s tribal elder. Nat Young was ahead of his time and helped lay the groundwork for athletes to come clean about their cannabis consumption.
