For the last 5 and half years, Nick Mucha has served as Save The Wave’s Director of Programs. Under Nick‘s tenure Save The Waves has had many wins: from growing the World Surfing Reserves in number and impact, to defeating Donald Trump’s Irish Wall, to protecting the ancient maritime culture in Peru. Nick‘s leadership, commitment to building community around conservation, and his undying work ethic has raised the profile and impact of Save The Waves in ways unimaginable. Nick will be sorely missed, but we know he will remain part of the Save The Wave’s Community in his new role as Environmental Programs Manager at Patagonia. Thank you Nick for all of your hard work, friendship, but most importantly the places you helped protect.
