Nerd laverty cannon

Nate is an interesting character. He’s big-hearted, intelligent, and great at what he does. However, he's kind of a space cadet sometimes, too. I once heard him described by a girl, who said to another girl, "He's kind of like an airheady girl, you know?" Nate's appreciation of all things snowboard-filmy is paralleled only by his enthusiasm for helping others and also making guacamole. So similar are the potencies of these Nate qualities that, often times, people confuse them, even in broad daylight. What happens when this confusion occurs? We're not allowed to say but, oh my god, it's a bewildering event for all. Nate is a prince amongst men, a steadfast consumer of chocolate, three pounds at a time, and an experienced saltwater soaker of expensive electronics. To those on Vancouver Island, he is known as Naké. His knowledge of the history and the process of snowboarding film production can be a gift to future generations, if only they learn of his home address and equip themselves with growlers of Tuff Session Ale. For now, his words here will do. Revel in their danger!
