Why Surfing?

The Santa Barbara beach culture is a lifestyle that has people from all over the world captivated. And in this beach town, if there are waves, there are surfers! Surfing has a long-lived history here that is echoed throughout every part of our beach-loving community.

The Problem

Surfing, like many other industries, have seen the industrialization of the lifestyle have negative effects on the very heart and soul of the sport; humanity and the ocean. Surf merchandise and world travel bring to light not only the complications of an environmentally conscious surfer, but also the complexities which we all face as global consumers.

The Solution

Join us as we celebrate and hear stories from surf entrepreneurs that are striving to bring surfing back to its roots, as being a culture that actively promotes good stewardship to the environment and humanity.
