Sector 9 Surfer and Environmental Activist, Kyle Thiermann.
"Some might argue the spark was ignited back in 1990. Back when Facebook was yet to be conceptualized and Kyle Thiermann was a 10-year-old boy growing up in Santa Cruz. The son of environmentally active parents, he had only just set foot on a surfboard for the first time. A decade later, he would combine those two passions—surfing and environmental activism—in a career that would see him traveling around the world as a teacher and filmmaker."

“Um I think I missed my flight” was the last thing we heard from Danny Tumia, aka Skelator. He came down for the Vans Combi event, got lost in LA at the SkateHouse, missed his flight and resurfaced a week later at the Raise Hell Jam up in Norcal. A barn, cows, and a ramp was the setting as Skelator threw down for a solid 2nd place finish in both pro and best trick. Yeah Skelatorrr !!!

Surfing came first, but skateboarding is beginning to infuse itself into the sport. Not only are the tricks crossing over, but its almost impossible to find a pro surfer who doesnt skate as well....
