Two adolescents are taking on mature subject matters of racial injustice and police brutality, while bringing the community down to the water with their surfboards.

Sophia Ruckriegel, 14, and her 12-year-old brother, Kilian Ruckriegel, who have been surfing half their lives, have organized a paddle out in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as solidarity and inclusion in surf, for Tuesday, August 25, at Napeague Lane Beach.
