WITH WHO AND DOING WHAT YOU CONSUME YOUR TIME?

On January 2nd, world traveller, artist, thinker, film maker and the Basque Country's favorite son Kepa Acero broke his neck while surfing at Mundaka, a wave that he grew up on. A closeout barrel sent him straight to the bottom where his head impacted with the sand. Unable to move his legs, he was fortunate enought to float to the surface where friends rescued him.

Only 5 months after the accident, Kepa is surfing again and Quiksilver has just released a five-minute video chronicling Kepa's injury, recovery process and reflections on how you spend your time.

SCHREDDING MONSTERS!

BIG WAVE CHARGER FROM LANZAROTE

Ever heard of Manuel Lezcano? Probably not.
Hailing from the Canary Islands, Lezcano calls Lanzarote home. In the last few years, he’s been working his ass off, and people are sitting up and taking notice. From big waves to big barrels, Lezcano just cemented a spot on the RVCA team, and from the looks of his surfing, it’s a great fit.
Watch the video for a sample of Manuel's barrel riding and the waves in La Santa and Famara, Lanzarote.

PRE-ORDER TODAY AND HELP SAVE THE WORLD!

This week we were very happy to receive an email from the founders of Acoustic - an organic surf apparel brand that donates 100% of profits to charity programs that protect the ocean and environment, rescue stray animals, help end poverty, and enrich humanity.

Gary and Danielle are currently in Playa Hermosa Costa Rica getting the first recycling program off the ground.
Miramar in Nicaragua, and Cuco/Las Flores in El Salvador - two of our surf destinations - are some of the places the first profits will go to. They are coming up in June to put in community gardens, recycling drop off/pick ups and orchestrating spay/nueter clinics.

We were very impressed with their work and their message really ressonated with us, so we'd like to give them a hand in promoting the newly launched Indiegogo campaing: https://igg.me/at/acousticcollective

Small gestures go a long way, and they only need 200 people to pre order 1 organic tee to make it happen, so any amount of support or sharing will make a big difference.
To learn more about the charity and voluntary programs visit http://theacousticinitiative.org/

TACKLING CHALLENGES WITH CHRIS BERTISH

A while ago we shared Chris Bertish SUP trans-Atlantic feat. Now we bring you an interview with the man who may very well be one of South Africa's most positive person!
Moments after nearly drowning, Chris Bertish charged the then-largest waves ever seen in a competition at the 2010 Maverick’s event. And won. The well-spoken South African has also just completed a 4,500 trans Atlantic journey on a hybrid SUP, written a book and keeps busy giving motivational talks.

"Mandela and Ali are my two most inspiring people on the planet that I believe in. I believe in their morals, their principles and their message. Those who believe they can change the world because those are the people that usually do."
Chris Bertish

SURFERS AGAINST OCEAN POLLUTION

The European documentary "White Waves" explores the work of several surfers doing what they can to protect the ocean and keep it clean. The documentary film makers travelled for two years along the beaches of Europe to meet these surfers and discover a lot of previously unknown types of pollution.

"Litter, wastewater, industrial products and chemicals – it is all ending up in the sea," says director Inka Reichert. "There are some people that observe and feel the pollution day by day with their own body: surfers. Their love of nature and the water gives them the strength to go out, investigate and search for the source of the pollution."

You can also rent or buy the full movie. Subtitles are available in English, French, Spanish, German and Portuguese.
