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.”
