Sean Brody

co-founder of Kwepunha Surf Retreat and CEO of the Surf Resource Network in San Diego.

Sean Brody was born and raised in San Diego, California where he grew up surfing the beaches of La Jolla. When he was 21 years of age he needed a break from the daily grind of college and he took off to surf and photograph his way around the world. This trip eventually lead to a career in surf photography, a plethora of world travels, and a position as staff photographer for Rusty Surfboards. Brody graduated San Diego State University with a degree in Communication and a minor in Hospitality, Tourism, and Recreation. Currently, in addition to his photography, Brody conducts research on sustainable surf tourism for the San Diego State University Research Foundation. It is Brody’s goal to combine his surf photography trips with surf philanthropy and, in addition, to be able to study the interaction between surfers and wave rich communities. In 2010 Brody founded the Surf Resource Network to help change lives in surf communities across the globe.
