Surfing for Change Strikes Again

blog kyleLocal change maker and pro surfer Kyle Thiermann has released another installment in his “Surfing for Change” short video series. In the past, he’s looked at important issues like banking locally and plastic pollution (all through the lens of a well-traveled surfer). In this episode, he visits Jeffreys Bay, South Africa, a surf hub where plans for a large nuclear power plant are in the works. “The question isn’t ‘do poor people need access to energy,’ it’s whether nuclear is the best way to provide it,” he says in the video, which also includes interviews with surf legend Kelly Slater, filmmaker Foster Gamble, and “Rebuild the Dream” founder Van Jones. Check out the video here, or at kylethiermann.com, and stay tuned to Good Times for more on what Thiermann is up to.
