Many of us have a pre-surf ritual… Waxing our boards, stretching and moving, listening to our favourite tune… Many are simply frothing to get out there. But what is your post-surf ritual?
Post-surf gratitude is something we all experience in some form. Many people do a plastic pick up already. If you don’t, we encourage you to join the movement.
Think of it as an ocean tax: we all have a responsibility to pay our taxes, and we all have a responsibility to take care of our environment. Plus, who doesn’t love beachcombing?
There are already some incredible initiatives out there making a huge impact on changing the public’s habits both on and beyond the beach. Join the evergrowing community of people encouraging environmental consciousness and saying thanks to mother ocean.
To share the contrast of your findings, be sure to include the ocean in the background – or get even in the water!

We, as ocean lovers, are in or near the sea at every opportunity. We get to see the impact that plastic pollution has on our marine environment.
It’s estimated that 20 million tonnes of plastic end up in our oceans every year. With an estimated 5.25 trillion plastic particles floating around in the world’s oceans.
Plastics absorb harmful chemicals on each surface every time they break up. Marine plastic debris has impacted over 600 marine species from the bottom to the top of the food chain.
