100% of profits fund our mission to protect and restore coastal ecosystems - turning the tide on climate change.

Wipe out the climate impact (carbon footprint and more) of your manufactured wave riding sleds (aka Surfboards, SUPs, Kite-boards, etc). 

With your support, we work with The Bay Foundation and local divers to remove over-populations of sea-urchins, and restore giant kelp forests in Palos Verdes, Southern California.

  • 10 sq.ft restored = Climate impact of 10 boards wiped out.
  • 20 sq.ft restored = Climate impact of 20 boards wiped out.
  • 50 sq.ft restored = Climate impact of 50 boards wiped out.

Kelp ecosystems in California are in a state of crisis. In Southern California more than 85% of the giant kelp forests have been devastated, and in Northern California almost 95% of the bull kelp forests have disappeared in the last 10 years.

Due to the human impacts of climate change and the removal of key predators like sea otters, sea urchins (which feast on the kelp) have proliferated to create "barrens" where kelp cannot grow.

The good - once the urchins are removed - kelp is the fastest growing organism and can grow up to 2ft per day!

Every square foot of giant kelp you help to restore:

  • Provides employment for local fisher-people and divers
  • Creates critical habitat for 100s species
  • Sequesters carbon
