We are live at the  the Santa Cruz Lighted Boat Parade with the KSCO radio broadcast sponsored by the famous Aldo's restaurant.

We are at the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor's annual Lighted Boat Parade.

ScreenShot2012-11-07at54528PM.png We talk to Kyle Theirmann, 22 year old pro surfer, who has created some serious waves around the world. He is the creator and host of the hit youtube series, Surfing For Change. Combining surfing great waves with making a series of short films about current issues, Thiermann focuses on the power you have to create a better world through everyday decisions.His first youtube movie in the series, Claim Your Change, details how money kept in multinational banks is used to finance destructive projects all over the world. One such project, a proposed coal-fired powerplant in Constitucion, Chile, home of a world-class surf spot and fishing village, is the subject of the movie.This video inspired people to move hundreds of million of dollars out of centralized banks into local banks and credit unions, and reached people throughout North America, South America, Africa and much of Europe.Since then, he has made movies ranging from the importance of shopping locally, to following a plastic bag to Hawaii.
