Editor’s Note: This article is brought to you by our partners at Vans.
The theme for this year’s US Open of Surfing is all about sustainability and as such, Vans has stepped up to highlight several key organizations working to protect our coastlines – both in Orange County and across the globe. Those partners include organizations like the Surfrider Foundation, Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii, WSL’s We Are One Ocean, and Orange County Coastkeeper. As a part of the on-the-sand action, each of these organizations have a booth you can visit to learn more about who they are and what they do.
At the Surfrider booth you can enter a raffle for a brand-new Firewire eco-board, sign up for a membership and get some swag, or just chat and learn about the work they’re doing “to protect and surf.”
