As surf tourism makes its way into new communities around the world, it brings about social change that can be positive if managed correctly. Kyle Thiermann of Surfing for Change made it a personal mission to go to Nicaragua and investigate exactly this.
The Breadbowl was swarmed by a group of do-gooders, led by Gullwing Truck Co., and rallying around a benefit for Ben Schroeder. The mayhem that followed was our favorite kind! Karl Strauss beers, Wahoo's fish tacos, raffles, punk rock, and a burly skate session!
Our favorite eco warrior, Kyle, headed down to Nicaragua to film his next Surfing for Change video. There he set out to show the world how surf tourism can have a positive impact on the local cultures. We cant wait to see the full length video, and Kyle... you’re the man!
During the last week in October, the bravest of adventurers gathered in NYC to attempt their escape from the city benefitting a charity of their choice. Team Sector 9, consisting of NY Fashion Model Chloe Norgaard, and Alex Ferzan, were among the ranks. One Porsche, and a few skateboards later, they were halfway across the state and still on the move! Enjoy the video and look out for Escape From LA coming soon…
