In other Easter-Fletcher related news, Nathan volunteered to visit the underprivileged children of Sweden and flew out to spend a day with them as the Easter Bunny.
Though there was a severe language barrier, and a few children were frightened to death of the masked marauder, most of the Scandinavian scamps welcomed Nathan with open arms as he passed out Easter baskets full of goodies and treats. Later that day, the villagers honored Nathan by throwing a traditional smorgasbord with exotic reindeer meats and herring.
A good time was had by all!
That Nathan. Always with a heart of gold.

Many people don’t know that Herbie, Christian, Nathan and Greyson Fletcher are in a barbershop quartet. Oh, yes! Better known as The Fab Fletchers, the guys have taken their act on the road!
And now that Spring is quickly approaching, The Fab Fletchers have been getting ready for their Easter debut performance at the outdoor San Clemente Music Hall.
Nathan has been working awfully hard on his tap dancing, and Christian has been working equally hard on perfecting his three-shuffle cane swing. Greyson’s baritone voice carries the group in their closing rendition of “Bye Bye Blackbird”, and Herbie will bring the house down with his overall charming presence. In other words, it’s going to be a show you don’t want to miss!
So come show your love for The Fab Fletchers. The boys love surfing and skating - there’s no doubt about that - but singing together as a foursome is their true passion.

To put it succinctly, perhaps Kelly Slater summed it up best when he recently wrote on his Instagram:
“#herbiefletcher pulled together another sick #wavewarriors group shot the other day. Hope he does it for another 20+ years. Good seeing the old guard and the new crew together in one place. Not many people could pull this shot off. Herbie sponsored my brother and I when I was 10yrs old. #legend”

Nathan was invited to surf in this season’s Eddie Aikau Invitational. Not everyone can just register their name and expect to participate in this contest. To be included in the Eddie is like some rite of passage for big wave riders. It is no easy feat, and is actually quite a big deal. So we’re more than proud and stoked to announce Nathan’s invite, and want to congratulate him as well as the other elite invitees who have the honor to surf and compete in such a prestigious event. Go guys, go! Eddie would have wanted it that way!

(By the way, have you seen Makua surf? Do you know what he’s capable of at places like Jaws? He’s so plugged in - it makes us shiver!)

In Part 2 of The D-Side with Makua Rothman, Oahu’s native son talks about tow in partners and bandmates, the chick conflict, how times have changed since he won the Billabong XXL back in 2002, and his opinion on women surfers. Haha, pretty good stuff. Check back for Part 3 soon.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the music you hear throughout the interview is Makua’s. Kid’s got some mean talent!

Makua Rothman has always been full of aloha charm, and now it’s resonating into a growing musical career. Taking a cue from the old sounds of Hawaii and blending it with his own modern twist, Makua is making music - and he’s making it sound good as is evident in our D-Side clip here with his song “Sweet Sunshine” playing in the background. Not only can this guy ride the biggest, gnarliest waves, but he can wail on the ukulele, too! Part I of Makua’s interview with Dibi Fletcher for The D-Side.
