Cyrus Sutton
Founder/Creative Director
Working in commercial production and making surf films, Cyrus created Korduroy 5 years ago to reflect his interests in the broadening surf scene. In the years since, he has helped empower other creative outdoorsmen and women by providing a platform where they can promote their work. A dedicated surfer and traveler, Cyrus has traded long hours in front of the computer for a more nomadic lifestyle, relying on his jailbroken phone and complimentary wifi to get his work done remotely.
