Kyle Theirmann : Buy Local, Surf Global

photo: Kyle

Kyle Theirmann, 20, is a pro surfer with a passion to systematically affect change. His first video, 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, is the subject of Claim Your Change.

The Claim Your Change video inspired people to move over $110 million dollars of lending power out of centralized banks into local banks, and reached over 10,000 people as far reaching as South America, Africa and much of Europe.

For more from Kyle go here. Saw on his website that he'll be speaking at the Plastics Are Forever Youth Summit in Long Beach early next year - awesome!
