Sustainable Surf protects and restores ocean health by shifting people to a highly desirable, low-carbon, ‘Deep Blue’ lifestyle

A California-based non-profit founded in 2011, we use the mass appeal of “surf-culture” to inspire and activate people all around the world to start living a sustainable lifestyle. Sustainable Surf’s globally-recognized programs – The ECOBOARD ProjectSeaTreesDeep Blue EventsWaste to Waves and Deep Blue Life – provide the onramps that make that vision a reality.
