It’s here! This is a day we’ve all been excited for at The Inertia, where we finally get to share the great stories and inspiration of our Third Annual EVOLVE Summit presented by White Claw and Kindhumans.
We’re proud to keep the tradition of celebrating individuals making a positive impact on surf and outdoor culture alive…and it’s The Inertia’s 10th anniversary…so it’s nice to finish 2020 on an uplifting note. We’ve done our very best to preserve the energy of our annual gathering for good digitally – taking you into the spaces and mindsets of individuals we deeply respect on the vanguard of Innovation, Creativity, Social Impact, Environment, DIY, and Health and Wellness.
