How do we apply pattern literacy learned from ocean life to the land? What have we learned from our historically colonial approach to surf culture? How do we move ourselves and our culture forward in regenerative ways that favour meaningful relationship within our own community and the living world? Homesteading surfer, filmmaker and entrepreneur Cyrus Sutton invites us to engage with these questions, and more, in our omnivorous conversation about leaving pro surfing and Southern California, cultivating mentorships, permaculture, intergenerational relationship, questioning the assumptions of the environmental movement and the value of B Corps. Cyrus Sutton is best known for his skill across diverse wave crafts and his creative reflections of surf culture via movies like Riding Waves, Under the Sun and Stoked and Broke. Cyrus is founder of Kordouroy.tv and Manda Organic Skincare. .....Listen with Lauren L.

Cyrus Sutton – Making Films That Explore How We Interact With Our Planet and Our Passions
Wild Ideas Worth Living
Cyrus’s Wild Idea: To continue to learn about our planet, people, and our passions by making films about these topics and sharing them with the world. To be interested instead of just interesting. Cyrus Sutton is an incredibly thoughtful and introspective person. A director, filmmaker, surfer, adventurer, and sought-after brand ambassador, Cyrus has produced Emmy Award-winning films, including Stoked and Broke, and is the founder of Korduroy TV, a website that explores creativity and sustainability in the outdoors. His latest film, Island Earth, documents how we grow our food, and explores the challenges between using conventional agricultural practices (including the use of science and chemical solutions) versus using ancient techniques to feed our population and our planet. Cyrus has travelled all over the globe, lived in California and even spent some time living and working out of a van. He now resides in the Pacific Northwest where he is working on growing his own food and enjoying documenting others who also live off the land and are interested in permaculture and sustainable ways of living. I’ve always been interested in Cyrus’s ideas and films, and enjoyed this conversation a lot. There are some true gems about following your dreams, the unique world of social media, the power of storytelling and the reality of what it takes to make a career around your passion. Listen to this episode if: You are interested in pursuing your passion full-time. You care about organic, non-GMO food. You love adventure sports. You like watching surf films or you are a surfer. You are a curious person who loves learning. You love Hawaiian culture. You want to know the pros and cons of living, working or traveling in a van. You grow your own food or want to learn how. You want to be a filmmaker. For full show notes, including guest links and books mentioned during the episode, visit: http://wildideasworthliving.com/31
