10,000 bucks Vans will made selling this sandal will go to Surfrider foundation to help them save some of the Earths endangered waves. Several breaks were lost in recent years and more are threatened. Four of them are printed on the Endangered Waves sandal – Ma’alaea in Hawaii, El Gongal in Spain, Bastion Point in Australia and Trestles in California.
“Right now a surf break is being lost or otherwise diminished somewhere on this planet,” says Surfrider Foundation CEO Jim Moriarty. “People need to understand that waves are finite resources. Once they are lost or damaged it is difficult, if not impossible, to restore them.”
