An Interview with Kyle Thiermann

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."

The Sector 9 Japan crew have been donating their time and efforts to helping the victims of the Japan Tsunami.

The crew brought a bunch of Sector 9 bamboo boards to the shelters and gave them out to the kids.  They had a great response, and helped make some smiles in a difficult time.

The devestation from the Tsunami is still everywhere and the Japanese people still need help. Do what you can to support them in a their time of need.
