We’re excited to jumpstart our second Creative Mornings event with Chad Nelsen speaking on behalf of this month’s theme of ‘Climate.’ Chad is the President & CEO of SurfRider Foundation, a grassroots non-profit environmental organization that works to protect and preserve the world’s oceans, waves, and beaches.

Chad is a leader in the new field of “Surfonomics,” which applies economics to value surfing. Chad is currently board president for the Save the Waves, an organization establishing World Surfing Reserves around the world, and a Director of The Coastal Society.

Come check out Chad’s talk this Friday, February 27th at Moniker Warehouse at 8:30AM.
