We started Shaka Surf because we wanted to "be the change" rather than passively watch our oceans and beaches get progressively worse with rubbish. As surfers, we have a responsibility to be better custodians of the ocean, after all it gives us so much enjoyment.
Recycling Plastic Waste
We came up with the idea of creating eco surf fins from recycled waste materials and plastics after coming in from a surf and seeing so much waste on the beach. We made a pledge to put this rubbish to good use.
As well as recycling waste materials and plastics to make our recycled fins we wanted to create a standout design. So we enlisted the help of a street artist to come up with a unique aesthetic. This lead to the development of the Swell lines, paying homage to surfing culture and oceanography.
To help our oceans and reduce the amount of plastics that end up washed up on our beaches in Europe and further afield. To use this waste and repurpose it into something that has great utility: a surfboard fin.
To participate in wide community led initiatives such as beach cleanups, training, seminars, and educate people on ocean environmental issues. To share the stoke by producing highly functional products of great quality and design
