6/9/18 - The Cigarette Surfboard in The Netherlands

 

 

In celebration of World Oceans Day, we took The Cigarette Surfboard out to the North Sea in The Netherlands for its maiden voyage. Though the ocean has no voice, we believe that it is our obligation as surfers and non-surfers alike to address the urgency of the many threats it faces by starting with tangible solutions everyone can make. Reduce your consumption of single-use plastics and plastic in general. Choose reusable utensils, bottles and other necessity items. Don’t flick your butts (they’re made of plastic). Carry an old mint tin, stash 'em and ditch 'em in the trash later. Go for a surf and snag some trash on your way in — it’s not going to pick itself up. Little things can make big differences, and by being part of something bigger than yourself is how we can start to solve the world's many problems.
