Whoever practices several surfing disciplines such as Kite-, Wind-, Stand up Paddle Surfing or Surfing knows that all these sports are strongly connected. Let’s share our spots with respect and enjoy the passion of surfing. Let’s point the way and get back the spirit of “surfers united”.
Nowadays the romantic picture of the relaxed and peaceful surfer who cares about nature and shares his passion with others in the water is more and more away from reality. Aggressive behaviour in certain spots between Wind- & Kitesurfers, Paddle Surfers & Surfers or just Surfers between each other is becoming normal. Some guys out there even think that this is part of the image of being a good rider. A shame that we all seem to forget to enjoy our passion on the water with respect for others and mother nature.
The idea behind this project is to create a movement of friendship and respect in the water. Many spots world wide are in Danger due to pollution, construction or prohibitions. We would like to join forces and we will dedicate part of this page to this problematic, giving the chance to help by signing petitions.
Another main intention is to generate good vibes and friendship on the beach. The spots worldwide are getting more and more crowded every day and despite the fact that rules are not the surfers best friend, certain simple rules will help us all, to enjoy our time on the water!

The sad truth is that spots around the world are getting more and more crowded which is sometimes frustrating and a source for aggressive behaviour. If we do not get organised non of us will really enjoy. Respect the etiquette of each spot and the priority rules. It's crucial to know those rules inside out, also for security reasons.
We should all make an effort to protect the natural environment. Surfers usually have a special connection to nature, why not show that we do care? There are many ways to act, so: Let's point the way! Just one idea: If we would all collect one object and throw it into the bin each time we go to the beach, we would be doing a great step forward. In any case you should at least follow a simple rule: leave no more behind than your footprints!
