WHY FAIR TRADE?
Because it supports the workers who build our gear.
The surf industry doesn’t like talking about what goes on behind the scenes. There’s a simple reason for that: it’s a business that often puts its own profit ahead of the welfare of workers and their communities. But by choosing Fair Trade, we can help change things for the better while ensuring that the people who make our gear are treated with the respect they deserve.
