In an ongoing effort To Protect & Surf, Vissla and the Surfrider Foundation are proud to collaborate to help ensure clean water and healthy beaches for today, tomorrow, and future generations. For a second year, proceeds from the newly released limited edition Vissla x Surfrider To Protect & Surf collaboration collection will support our shared goal of protecting our ocean, waves and beaches. A curated selection can be purchased on the Surfrider Shop and in surf shops around the country. The full collection can be purchased here on Vissla's website.
The 2019 Vissla x Surfrider To Protect & Surf collection is a fresh line of apparel and accessories featuring boardshorts in two colorways, four 100% organic cotton t-shirt designs and a hat. Turning waste into want, Vissla has innovated an eco-friendly coconut fiber material using a process called Cocotex® to turn overlooked coconut husks blended with Repreve® recycled polyester into a flexible, comfortable and durable fabric for trunks. This reduces the amount of waste in the oceans and in landfills, giving you style you can feel good about.
In celebration of this year's collection, the Surfrider Foundation Oahu Chapter invited Vissla Creator & Innovator, Cliff Kapono- a surfer, chemist, journalist and all-around inspiring advocate for our ocean, waves and beaches- out for a day in the life of a Surfrider volunteer. They cleaned the beach at Magic Island, tested the water for harmful bacteria, and enjoyed the waves they helped protect.
Vissla is a young and bold surf line that came on the scene in 2013 and has been a proud supporter of Surfrider and member of the Surf Industry Coastal Defenders program since 2015. They represent creative freedom, a forward-thinking philosophy and a generation of creators and innovators. Embracing a do-it-yourself attitude within surf culture, performance and craftsmanship, Vissla propels a surf-everything and ride-anything mentality while maintaining a high standard for being an environmentally responsible brand.
