Well, we all know that surf has a huge impact on oceans, which is a kind of contradiction as we love the ocean and waves. But surf it’s far away from being a green sport.

Eco-friendly quality blanks for surfboards are really hard (or expensive) to achieve, and surf wax it’s a standard solution from ages now, and the lack of biodegradable and greener options it’s visible in most surf shops. If you’re interested in calculating the impact it has on our oceans just check our calculator here.

Not to mention wetsuits, leashes, and fins. Of course that you have always alternatives and some are really cool and will surpass all your expectations. As an example, I’ve tried already recyclable fins from Marlin Fins and also from Eisbach Riders and can assure you that for a common surfer you will not notice the difference to high-performance fins, at least my habilities to surf don’t notice that. And most of the time, for half the price of a carbon XPTO thing that will never make you surf as good as JJF, for sure.

So, I have a simple tip for you to convert your surf sessions into something that will give you the feeling that you are taking care of your local surf spot. Probably you already do that and clap clap clap for that. But if you don’t:

Every time I go surf, I try to collect as much trash when I came back to the parking lot as I can. It’s a really simple act and costs me nothing. Despite it looks a really simple and ineffective gesture, the last numbers available we are between 17 million and 35 million (!!!). Imagine that each one of us does the same thing, and multiply that by the number of surf sessions each one does (on average 2 per week). That would be the biggest beach clean-up in the world. So, next time you go surf, try to do that. You will waste no more than a few seconds, will be an example for other surfers and your beach will certainly become cleaner and cleaner as more and more surfers do that.
