WHAT HAVE TREES TO DO WITH SURFING?
🟢Surf it's a sport that we practice on mother nature, but perhaps we are not helping to have a better one::
🟢The production of the surf material such as surfboards or wetsuits produces high CO2 emissions that need to be compensated. For example(6’1 Shortboard produces as much CO2 as a flight from Madrid to Gran Canaria)
