Using cigarette butts and surfing to build ocean mindfulness and stewardship

Industrial Designer Taylor Lane and filmmaker Ben Judkins are creating an environmental surf film that uses the Cigarette Surfboards to question the mentality of littering cigarette butts, and how this largely represents our single-use plastic culture and its effects on the ocean. The Cigarette Surfboards allow us to meet with surfers and other influential people that are making an inspiring difference in the world to protect our oceans. Our film will provide a toolkit for surfers & non-surfers alike to become more engaged stewards of the sea, as surfers of all types glide and slide on the Ciggy Board quiver.



We’ve worked countless hours and been fueling this project with passion. Help us continue to our journey to influence more ocean mindfulness and stewardship thought our surfboards and film currently in production by purchasing one of our rad T-shirts!

Musician and environmentalist Jack Johnson met The Ciggy Board Boys at the International Marine Debris Conference in San Diego in 2018. Jack had heard of the project but when they mentioned they were working on a few more boards, he didn’t hesitate to invite them out to Hawai’i... fast forward a year, and those words became a reality.
