July 8, 2014 – As part of the Santa Cruz World Surfing Reserve initiative, Save The Waves and Surfrider are partnering with Bureo Skateboards, the world’s only 100% recycled skateboard made from marine debris (used fishing nets), for a beach clean-up on July 19th.
A new venture based in the US and Chile, Bureo Skateboards is dedicated to finding solutions for the growing issue of ocean plastic pollution through the team’s initiative, ‘Net Positiva’, where they recycle fishnets into skateboards.
“Santa Cruz is a huge part of the surf/skate culture in California, and we are looking forward to getting up North to help out with the clean-up, share our new boards with the community and hopefully grab a couple waves. We were fortunate enough to participate in Save The Waves’ efforts in Chile this year during their annual coastal clean-up campaign, ‘Unidos por Aguas Limpias’, shared David Stover, Bureo’s CEO, “STW and Surfrider play a critical role in stewarding the coastal environment, a resource that we all cherish and need to work together to protect.”
The Bureo Skateboards team will be on hand during the clean up and providing demos and a raffle of their skateboards.
In the second collaborative beach clean-up this year, Save The Waves Coalition and Surfrider Foundation Santa Cruz Chapter are excited to highlight this Bureo and the World Surfing Reserve in a day of community stewardship.
