The second day of Surf Summit 20 featured workshops and speakers covering topics from how to increase the reach of surf beyond the beach to how brands can harness the power of culture, technology and social good to help their business.

Those talks, in addition to Friday night’s keynote address by Stance CEO Jeff Kearl about the radically changing consumer, sparked a lot of conversation throughout the day.

Attendees were on their own for dinner, and many ended up at the delicious Flora Farms.

We have photos from Surf Summit Day 2 above in our slide show.
