SURFBOARD SOCK GIVEAWAY

OUR MISSION

SURF ADVENTURE STOKE WHILE REDUCING YOUR ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT

ABOUT US

We are not going to hit you with the 'be the change' phraseology. However, if you do want to be the change, we are down with that.

We know you have options, and if you decide that our product fits into your surf life then we would be stoked and honored. We have spent 10+ years developing, designing, testing, and perfecting Wave Tribe products just for you.

Wave Tribe's mission is to create a symbiotic relationship between sport and planet. In our journey we invite like-minded surfers to envision a wave that is clean, clear, plastic free and that mirrors a society of people who recognize the intrinsic beauty of nature and the significance of doing the right thing.

INNOVATIVE METHOD

Every product we make is designed with the highest possible quality materials like YKK zippers (boardbags), cork (deckpads), and recycled plastic (leashes). All of our products are manufactured with care for the planet in ethical working conditions with longtime partners.

Along the way we invented a bunch of cool eco products for the surf industry including three firsts ever.

After the first year in business, Wave Tribe hit a product trifecta:

  1. Hemp day and travel boardbags;
  2. Cork deckpads & traction;
  3. Recycled leashes.

Lot's of people have tried Wave Tribe's products and we have geared surfers up for a decade now.

ECOLOGY & STOKE

We wanted to find a way to give our customers something extra other than rad eco surf gear—so we started putting together free resources, travel guides, board shaping manuals, and surf travel resources.

Every week we publish free articles to help plan your next trip and a few to help you understand the changes in our climate and how that is impacting our planet and oceans.
