WaveSisters sustainability series: Green Surfing

Environmental protection and surfing – is that even possible?


Surfers love the sea and everything that comes with it. We love spending time in nature, hanging out in the line-up and feeling the power of the ocean with every set. Therefore, we travel a lot and all around the world. It’s the only way to visit the best spots, get the greatest waves, surf with dolphins and slip into the surf bikini instead of the thick wetsuit. It is obvious that our search for the perfect wave is not the best for our planet.


This is why this blog series of WaveSisters is dedicated to the topic of sustainable surf. Here you get ideas for a more ecological journey and an eco-friendly stay. We also thought about sustainable surfboards, wetsuits, wax and we hope you like our ideas.


The following 4 articles takes a critical look at our (travel)-behaviour and asks the question: What can we actually do for the planet and the oceans if we get so much in return?


Guest author Christina

Christina is 28 years old and originally comes from Austria. She discovered surfing only three years ago during a 7-month trip to South America. Initially rather sceptical and anxious, the allure of the water was enough in October 2019 for her to quit her job as an advertising copywriter in Hamburg and set off for Portugal. Currently she is living at the Costa da Caparica and is looking forward to share her new surfing knowledge, which is just beginning, with the WaveSisters in this blog.

She is always available for text and blog posts.
