The Waterpeople Podcast is a gathering place for our global ocean community to dive into the critical conversations of our culture –  through storytelling.

We wanted an inclusive place to share stories from diverse voices within surfing culture from around the world.

We begin each episode with a simple question: “Tell us about a time or experience after which you were never the same…” and sit with some of the most adept waterpeople on the planet to explore common themes of aquatic lives lived well: ecology, adventure, community, activism, science, egalitarianism, inclusivity, meaningful play.  And surfing, of course.
