One Percent

42 Surfboards is a proud member of 1% for the planet.
For us, paying our earth tax is no problem. We are about doing it right whether we are surfing, shaping, or doing our accounting. Edward Abbey once said something on the order of “Constant growth is the philosophy of a cancer cell.” 42 Surfboards is not here to grow. 42 Surfboards is not here to become some mega-conglomerate. 42 Surfboards is here to build surfboards, be a great place to work, and show that you can have a positive impact on the environment while feeding your kids and doing something you love. Being part of 1% For The Planet and The Surfrider Foundation are not something we do for image or marketing. These fantastic groups are actually part of our reason for existing. It is thrilling to take part of our earnings and commit them to real on-the-ground activism. At the same time though, it is an investment that any business that actually cares about our environment can’t afford to miss. Just as David Brower said “There is no business to be done on a dead planet”, there are no waves to be ridden in a dead ocean. We hope that all of our colleagues will join us in supporting 1% For The Planet and The Surfrider Foundation.

Check out And then join us.

Life is short. You are good. Ride a board that makes you proud.
