The oceans where we practice watersports regulate the climate and house 99% of the biosphere, controlling the weather and providing oxygen for every breath we take. We are excited to see ISA involved in the efficient mangrove planting program and look forward to reviewing all the participants flights and emissions for the total calculation to ensure that the mangrove planting will balance the emissions. Mangroves have a vital role in protection of lives and properties in vulnerable coastal communities from tsunamis and extreme weather. Mangroves increase sea food stocks up to 50% and have several important features that help curb climate change.
Starboard | CEO
We’re stoked to be working with Starboard, our largest SUP and windsurf partner, and the first to shift their entire board range to plant-based epoxy resins. Their commitment to actively start the process to embed the values of sustainability throughout their entire product and packaging range, and to work with local communities to clean and protect the ocean is something to celebrate everyday – but especially on World Oceans Day.
Sustainable Surf | Founder
I am convinced that play, knowledge and curiosity are great levers for awakening awareness and behavioral changes in harmony with our environment. It is in with that spirit that I created Watertrek, eager to explore new creative approaches to reconnect man with water and inspire the desire to take care of this vital resource.
Watertrek | Founder
At SUPKids, we really believe that connecting kids to nature can help save the planet. And so working alongside Starboard makes perfect sense -we’re all passionate about getting more people outside. Nature is the perfect teacher - it teaches us gratitude, humility, respect and presence (and so much more). But those particular values, combined with a passion for protecting our environment, are the perfect building blocks for committed & creative change-makers & ambassadors for the planet.
