Editor’s Note: On August 18, The Inertia’s EVOLVE Summit will celebrate people from the surf and outdoor worlds that use their influence to make a positive imprint on society. Cyrus Sutton epitomizes the pursuit of individuality–observing the way society operates and charting a new course. From famously spending time living in what we still believe is the raddest van of all time to creating films inspiring viewers to protect what they love, Cyrus makes no apologies for doing it his way. Here, he takes a look at a crucial fork-in-the-road moment, where he chose the lane less traveled. Cyrus will be speaking about building a life around your passions at this year’s EVOLVE Summit.
