The top photo shows nats eastern mystic logo he used on his boards in the 70s, generally tight pintails with small narrow based fins and boxy rails.

The bottom photo is a frame grab from Morning of the earth at the very beginning of his section Nat rides 2 lefts which I believe are the high point of the movie. Beautiful strong surfing and some elegant cross stepping perfect motion.

When author Tim Winton talked about surfing in his book ‘Breath’ and saying it is one of the few things that man does that is beautiful for no reason just self satisfaction, he could have been  referring to rides like this.
