Surf Ride is participating in the Waste To Waves program. Bring any styrofoam to our shop and we’ll help you recycle it. By recycling, you keep this terrible styrofoam out of landfills, out of the oceans, and grants you submission into a free surfboard raffle.

Waste to Waves(TM) is an exciting new program by Sustainable Surf. It’s for recycling lots of different waste materials into new, eco-friendlier surfing products. For the initial launch campaign, you can “Turn Your Trash Into Slash,” by recycling your waste packaging foam – aka “styrofoam” – into new eco-friendlier surfboard blanks. By participating, you can directly help create “greener” surfboard materials that help reduce negative impacts from surfboard production, and you’ll be diverting this foam/plastic trash away from the waste stream and potentially ending up on our oceans, waves and beaches.

How The Program Works

Step 1: Collect All of Your Waste EPS Foam

Step 2:  Find a local surf shop participating in Waste to Waves

Step 3: Drop off your waste foam in the collection box for Waste to Waves

Step 4: Enter the Free Surfboard Raffle

Step 5: Foam is picked up, ground up, and reprocessed into a new recycled EPS blank

Step 6: Ask your shaper to make you a board from a recycled EPS foam blank made through Waste to Waves

The program runs from Nov 22 – Jan 31st in select surf shops in both Southern and Northern CA
