Deconstruct strategies from the successful Fight for the Bight campaign with one of the movement's central voices, Sean Doherty, also one of surfing's most celebrated storytellers.

Head of Brand Engagement at Patagonia Australia and New Zealand, Sean Doherty is a journalist and author who has spent more than three decades reporting on surf culture, identity, and industry, with a humorous, self-deprecating, Aussie larrikin tone.
