Fossil fuel free wetsuits
Two Surfrider partners are bringing a higher standard to cold-water gear by using innovative materials to provide high performance while minimizing their impact. Both VISSLA's Eco-Seas and Patagonia's Yulex wetsuits use natural rubbers, non-toxic glues and recycled plastic to reduce the impact of their wetsuits. With these choices, you can take one more step toward minimizing the environmental impact your recreation has on the world. Find out more!

Stand Up To Oil
President Obama exercised his executive authority to ‘withdraw’ parts of the Atlantic and Arctic outer continental shelf from future oil or gas leasing, creating a ban on future offshore drilling for key habitats! While Surfrider applauds this significant decision, there is still more work to be done to protect the remaining Atlantic areas of the coastline from the threat of oil drilling and seismic blasting off the coasts. Join us and find out more!
