“One way for me to keep the balance is to start doing small changes in my life to preserve what I love the most. That’s why sustainability is so important: it is the simplest way to be thankful to nature.” ~ Mercedes Maidana, Wave Tribe Team Rider
Cork Is Harvested From Live Trees Thank you for the Wave Tribe Cork Traction pad I bought from you guys, its getting some major action in Kauai! Love it .” ~ Jeff T, Kauai
Eco Deckpad In the 1600s a Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon observed that wooden stoppers wrapped in oil-soaked rags used to seal his bottles of sparkling wine often popped out, and so he replaced them with the conical pieces of cork to seal his bottles of sparkling wine. That stroke of genius was similar to what Wave Tribe experienced when they discovered cork as an alternative to plastic. Wave Tribe developed the World’s First Eco Deck Pad in 2009 (some other companies copied our lead which was a great compliment—a sign that we are pushing the industry in the right direction). Most deck pads are made out of non environmentally friendly EVA plastic (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate). We first tested recycled EVA pads but they didn’t hold up well— they were a bit soft and didn’t quite offer the right consistency. After trying several different alternatives we did some R&D with cork and we found it to be a wonderful alternative to plastic. So what makes cork so sustainable? First and foremost, cork is sustainably harvested from cork oak trees, without killing or harvesting the entire tree. Once the cork trees reach maturity (around 25 years old), the outer layer of bark can be stripped off the tree without harming the tree in any way.

Pushing The Limits “Surfing is the love of my life.” ~ Mercedes Maidana, Wave Tribe Team Rider
Mercedes Maidana, Wave Tribe Team (Photo by Jeff Munson)
Mercedes Maidana, Team Rider Her name is Mercedes Maidana, she is from Buenos Aires, Argentina and her passion in life is surfing big waves. As she says, “I live for it, I breath it, and I want to be able to make a serious career out of it.” Mercedes’ goal is to become one of the best female big wave surfers in the world, both paddling into huge waves and towing in. When Mercedes first approached Wave Tribe we asked her why she was interested in partnering with the world’s first green surf company, her stoke for surfing and her passion for life was as evident in her answer, “surfing is the love of my life. I would not know what to do or who to be if I didn’t have it. As any loving relationship, I think that it has to have a balance of giving and receiving. The ocean gives me more gifts than I could ever reciprocate.” Wave Tribe team riders are more than surfers, they are conscious beings that recognize the importance of helping to transform the surf industry and when we asked Mercedes why green surf products were important to her she responded, “One way for me to keep the balance is to start doing small changes in my life to preserve what I love the most. That’s why sustainability is so important: it is the simplest way to be thankful to nature.”
Eco Wax 100% Organic We searched far and wide for the right organic wax, when we found this one made in the U.S.A. on wood stoves we were super excited to test it out.

The wax goes on the board easy and does its job, it keeps your feet where they are supposed to be—a great eco wax made in the USA.

About Wave Tribe
Wave Tribe is learning as we go, we are a stoked company of surf crazed human beings looking to do the right thing in a market place driven by big brands, corporate companies, and small margins. Like everyone else we are making our product overseas, but we are doing it differently. Wave Tribe is committed to using sustainable materials and partners with companies that maintain an ethical work environment—‘we’ as consumers have forced companies to deliver lower and lower priced products. The reality is that ‘how’ a purchase impacts ones wallet is more decisive than ‘how’ the product influences the environment. We need to change how we think, how we consume, and how we live. It’s up to all of us to join this tribal movement and to recognize the importance of walking (and surfing) differently. Our oceans and planet deserve and demand an immediate action, our lives are intimately connected to their health and if we don’t act now we’ll all be surfing in wave pools filled with boogie borders and chlorinated water. Peace. ~ Derek D. Wave Tribe Founder One Ocean, One Planet, One Tribe.
