Big Brothers Big Sisters brought children and their "Bigs" to the North Shore for a recent event with Surf'SUP, a local stand-up paddle boarding company. The event, called First Waves, was a conservation workshop designed to provide experiences in stand-up paddling, the art of filmmaking, and digital media as a catalyst to inspire conservation of local waterways and mentorship of youth. Children and their Bigs learned how to paddleboard and then worked to clean up the river.
Meet Ian Smith, of Surf'SUP, and learn about his career path as an entrepreneur and catalyst for these programs. He loves the great outdoors and the environment, and he's driven to share this with others. He's tried several careers – and has now found his home. His company offers team-building events, youth initiatives, and conservation-oriented programs that are customized for all age and skill levels. Come enjoy a conversation with Ian!
