Every day we are allowed to accompany our customers to remote beaches and waves. The majority of the travel distance is covered by the aircraft, the most often criticized means of transport when it comes to CO2 emissions.
Global warming is being driven by the ever-increasing greenhouse effect, which in turn is caused by the growing number of greenhouse gases. Probably the most well-known gas among the polluters in the atmosphere is carbon dioxide. Since 1958, the shares have been rising exponentially from 300 parts per million (ppm) to 410 ppm today.
The consequences are reflected, among other things, by severe and prolonged droughts, coral bleaching, melting glaciers and steady rise in the temperature of the seas and other waters.
You can’t do it without the sea!
As a specialized provider of surfing trips, we depend on an intact nature. We need clean beaches, healthy corals, clean water so we can continue to recommend destinations with perfect waves.
“We are now responsible for acting so that our children and their children can continue to experience the fascination of surfing.”
