summary
This time, we conducted an awareness survey on surfers’ social contributions to 101 veteran surfers with over 10 years of experience. We found that about 80% of veteran surfers want to contribute to society for reasons such as “I want to protect nature and the environment.” In addition, about 80% of surfers answered that their surfing experience had an impact on their awareness of contributing to society. I could see that it was increasing.
Many veteran surfers are also interested in surfboards made from “biomass” and “reusable plastic,” revealing that there is a high level of interest in products that are likely to help solve the problem of plastic waste. .
For surfers with a long surfing history, coexistence with nature has become a matter of course, and the increasing amount of garbage in the surfing environment is a familiar reality. For this reason,
environmental awareness and desire to contribute to society are increasing year by year, and people who love the sea are thinking about what they can do every day. Although many surfers already participate in garbage pick-up activities and use eco-bags, the purchase of surfboards made of “biomass” or “reusable plastic” makes them feel that they are contributing to society in their daily surfing. Easy to hold and popular with surfers.
Contributing to society starting with a surfboard. Japan’s

I love the clean sea. This is a strong feeling of all surfers. Sea Through is a plastic material that is used in our lives. I want to reuse it without throwing it away and spread eco-friendly sports activities.
