Not too long ago we caught up with ambassador Kieran Anderson to learn more about him so we could share with you guys. Kieran is one of those people that when you meet him you will never forget as he has this infectious energy and is one of the funniest people we know. He has a way of making everyone he meets feel like a friend. Not only is he downright hilarious out of the water, he is also an accomplished big wave charger surfing the likes of Mavericks and Ocean Beach, San Francisco. In addition to his surf talents, he is a humble and caring guy that can be found teaching groms to surf or skate when is not traveling the world in search of surf. We have really been blessed with this guy becoming an integral part of the Degree 33 family. Check out what makes Kieran tick in this short interview.
