Ocean without plastic

Here comes the gang of surfing and skateboarding. Are 3 friends: Ben R Kneppers-skater-, David M Stover and Kevin J Ahern-surfers – who decided to seek solution to the volume of plastic dumped in the oceans, starting by giving end to fishing nets.

Passionate about the environment, took for himself the job of picking up this garbage from under the sea and create beautiful custom skateboards, as shown in the picture above. They believe that the initiative can inspire other people to find solutions for sustainable products.

Made to last-and here, the result of the work of a group of friends and relatives in the Netherlands, which shares the passion for water sports and the strong contact with nature.
