Jack was incredibly proud to join Surfrider Foundation and hundreds of supporters at The Ecology Center to honor his wife Kim for her years of work dedicated to clean oceans. Kim Johnson received the Surfrider Women Making Waves award to celebrate her achievements, including her innovative efforts to reduce single-use plastic in the music industry and to engage communities and youth in solutions to plastic pollution. Enjoy this short video highlighting Kim’s impact. Congratulations Kim!

It was a beautiful evening, with Jack joining his good friend Lukas Nelson on the stage, as well as bandmates Zach Gill and Adam Topol, to play a few songs before a farm to table dinner presented by chef Ed Kenney from Hawaii. Ed is also a big supporter of Surfrider, recently teaming up with Jack to promote the Ocean Friendly Restaurants program to reduce plastic waste. Ethan Estess of Countercurrent had his epic new Fore the Waves sculpture on display made from 20,000 golf balls removed from the ocean below Pebble Beach, collected by Alex Weber and The Plastic Pickup. The wave is designed to inspire businesses and individuals to take action and think creatively to reduce plastic waste. This memorable One Ocean event supported Surfrider’s efforts to protect our oceans, waves and beaches. Thank you to everyone for joining in on a fun night as we celebrated Kim!
