Kyle Thiermann is an activist. The Santa Cruz 23-year-old has decided to devote his life to surfing for change, starting a video series appropriately titled Surfing For Change. We ain’t talking nickels and dimes here — we’re talking actual change in issues around the world. Activism can be fun, says Kyle, especially when barrels are involved. In this episode of SFC, Kyle trips to Indonesia and tackles the country’s waste management issue. It’s an interesting concept, and one that might just get the global citizen juices flowing on your next trip — well worth 15 minutes of your weekend.

PS – Orange you glad we didn’t say grass roots?
