SURF SRI LANKA /
SAVE THE OCEAN

The first joywave fundraising campaign, to support marine conservation in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is a surfer's paradise, boasting perfect, slowly crashing waves, set after set. However, the country's marine ecosystems are under substantial threat.

 

Fortunately, the Lanka Environment Fund exists, supporting grassroots projects that are protecting and restoring this spectacular country's underwater landscape.

so, we organised a Fundraising Campaign!

Surf Sri Lanka / Save The Ocean

Surfers from all around the UK donated and fundraised in late 2023 to protect the waves of Sri Lanka.

Dionne, Lou, and Ella from Saunton Surf Sisters fundraised ferociously and were drawn at random to join the joywave team for a week in a surfer's paradise - Ahangama, Sri Lanka.
