|Tony Corley 1966|
Our final guest in the ITYC Radio Earth Day series, Tony Corley, is a huge part of surfing history and the organization he founded, The Black Surfing Association, has created an international community of black surfers. We talked to Tony about his life of surfing and his thoughts about the environment and why surfers are the natural stewards of our oceans. He also discussed another important surfing film, in which he appeared, called 12 Miles North, which tells the story of Nick Gabaldon, the first African American surfer. (Note: Gabaldon was of black and Mexican heritage)
You can listen to our entire conversation with Tony here and on iTunes. Thanks to Tony and to all of our guests who helped ITYC celebrate Earth Day this April.
