Our founder is a lifelong member of the Surfrider Foundation
because of his love of oceans, waves, and beaches.
On his personal blog, he writes mostly about
technology ... but also a little about surfing,
a sport he learned as a teenager living in Hawaii and Southern California.
In 2008, he joined with some of his new Minnesota surfing friends to cofound the
MN-Superior Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation,
and help the chapter get active on social media.
For more on the chapter, see this article in Wilderness News.
