As we #Remember those veterans today that gave their lives , we can't forget seeing the film #Resurfacing (at the recent BlueMind6 conference), which showcased the amazing work of @operationsurf ~ who are using the power of surfing to give our #Wounded warriors a reason to #Live. ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ. Qualitative words like #inspirational, #transformative, #healing don't even scratch the surface of what this program (founded by @vancuraza) has been accomplishing, so let's just look at the #Qualitative data: PTSD symptoms down by #36% , depression down by #47% , and an astonishing #68% increase in self-efficacy (belief in oneself). ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ„๐Ÿพ So if you're looking to thank a #veteran for their service, look up the next beach that #OperationSurf is giving the gift of surfing to our service men & women, and #giveback some of your time and treasure to keep this #service alive and sliding.๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #deepbluelife

Land of #Oz edition: Been living #DownUnder and wondering when your local shop would have custom #ECOBOARDs from a legendary Australian shaper on the racks?! ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ The wait is over ya dirty #dingos - because @zaksurfboards in Melbourne just got their first shipment of #Dirty dingo models from @mcsurfboards - and they are bad to the #bone. ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿถ These wave sleds were crafted in #CA by the #SaltyDogs over at @earthtechnologies , and they carry the latest and greatest in more sustainable materials including: 100% bio-based #Flax cloth, plant based epoxy by @entropyresins , and 25% recycled EPS cores by @markofoamblanks โ™ป๏ธ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฑ . Better start begging for one soon, or you'll be left howling... #deepbluelife

Finally nabbed one of the new @slaterdesigns #ECOBOARDs last week at the @boardroomshow , and so had to bring it up #North to show the #BlueMind crew the latest in more sustainable and #Rad surf sleds ! ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ง. It drew an epic crowd, including former #Mavericks Champ @chrisbertish , who is training to embark on his own #epic journey in the #Atlantic ocean later in the year. ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ Good luck Chris! #deepbluelife @firewiresurfboards @recork #Tomo #Omni

#Sunday Sessions - Rollin to the surf #OleSkool style in a fully restored VW 1965 single cab type 1 Van (flat bed), with a couple logs and few fishes ! ๐ŸšŽ๐ŸšŽ๐ŸšŽ 50 years on the road and counting - this rare surf wagon has no need for racks as your entire quiver (and then some) can just fit in the back, and the sides even fold down to make a stage for your favorite #band to #jam out on while you're camping out for the weekend. Why can't all surf gear be as durable and useful as this?? ๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽบโ›ฐโ›บ๏ธ Too bad we had to give this #BabyBlue back to our buddy Peter afterwards, but he's thinking about selling it...so maybe SSurf needs a #Company car for doing all those #WasteToWaves styrofoam collection drives?! โ™ป๏ธโ™ป๏ธโ™ป๏ธ Should we do a @Kickstarter ? Let us know what you think... #deepbluelife

Epic session with @highlinefestivalofsurfing , and everybody said we were totally #Rippin... โš ๏ธโš ๏ธโš ๏ธ.

More info on this collaboration soon (and where you can drop your #Shred suit off at to be recycled ) , #Butt for now, just know that your old wetsuits don't have to end up in the garbage dump, they can get a new life as your new #yoga mat, changing pad or beverage koozie! ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿป๐Ÿบ. #deepbluelife ๐Ÿ“ธ by @twopinefarm

#Whale be #spouting out about it - if we see more of these sea critters cruising around the beach this weekend. ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿณ Seen quite a few #ceatations recently, and we sure don't want them sucking in plastic trash while they play in the waves either, so let's all take a page from Joel Harper's @allthewaytotheocean book and keep our coastlines clean ! @seachangestory ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™ And if you want to take a #deeper dive into how surfers can help support all of our whale, dolphin and other finned friends - check out the @s4cglobal crew , which was started by fish/man @daverastovich after he was protected from a shark attack by his own guardian #dolphin. ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฌ #deepbluelife
