Earlier this year, we traveled to the West Papua Region of Indonesia to launch a brand new mangrove restoration project with our local planting partners Eden Projects. On the way to Indonesia, we attended the Global Wave Conference in Australia - sharing our plans for the future of SeaTrees with a committed crew of ocean-activists, scoring some cyclone swell on a couple of ECOBOARD sleds from the crew at Firewire, and meeting the wonderful and inspiring Pacha Light, who promptly joined the small crew we had assembled for the trip to Indonesia.
Captured in full on the latest episode of Firewire Surfboard’s - The Wire. The first to be recorded over Zoom. Host, Chris Grow in Southern California and Michael from Sustainable Surf in the hills surrounding San Francisco Bay.
Most surfers identify as environmentally conscious citizens, but unless you’re driving to your local break in an all-electric vehicle powered by renewable energy (which some of you are, and thank you), and/or you’ve gone full-Fergal Smith and have given up air travel all together, you’re likely contributing to the global emissions crisis in your fossil-fueled pursuit of waves.
