Derek, the founder of Wave Tribe, wrote this manifesto to give some direction to his vision of Wave Tribe. He wanted to remember himself but also wants you to remember the key elements:
- Do What You Love
- Risk Play
- Be Enthusiastic Surf
Whatever you decide is a vest for your life, we hope you enjoy this daily reminder as it hangs on your fridge—we hope every time you crack a beer after a great surf, you think of us.
Here is the rest of the Manifesto.
