Surfrider turns 27

August 17 2011 | Events, Activism,

I just recieved a message from Glenn Hening reminding me that today is Surfrider's birthday.

Glen signed the founding documents twenty seven years ago today on a summer afternoon in Santa Monica.

In his message to me he made sure to give special thanks to the other individuals that were involved that day. That group included Tom Pratte, Lance Carson, Chris Blakely and Dan Young.

Many of us think of big ideas from time to time and the simple truth is that few get behind those ideas and put them into action.

Thanks Glenn.

Thank you Tom, Lance, Chris and Dan.

All of us connected to Surfrider Foundation owe these founding fathers.

I captured the story of these early days on a podcast with Glenn, that's here.

Happy Birthday.
