Alexander van Orshaegen, founder of Slate surf and good friends with Errant Surf and SurfaWhile has created the video below about how Slate Surf has supported the Kovalam Surf project in India.
On the website of Slate Surf, they write: ”2020 has been a crazy year. The pandemic, lockdown, uncertainty… It speaks for itself that it hasn’t been easy for anyyone. In certain parts of India, not all children are blessed with a safe environment. The Kovalam Surfclub is a local initiative, founded by Jelle Rigole (Belgian surfer), that wants to change this. With this organization, he tries to encourage and motivate the children to go to school by rewarding them with surf lessons. But only if they can prove that they have attended the classes during the week. Hence the rule “no school, no surfing”.
Slate Surf is donation a part of their profits to this organization and besides that, we believe their fashion also looks very handsome. This makes it a true win-win 🙂 In addition, Slate Surf says: ”We are very honored to announce that because of all your purchases the past year, we were able to donate to this beautiful organization. We look forward to the future to keep on supporting these nice initiatives. We are so grateful to work together with awesome people like Jelle, who is making the world a better place!”
