Oceaneer of the Month

Each month we celebrate special contribution from community members by selecting an Oceaneer of the Month. This person gets to choose from the following prizes.

Ocean-adventure with James Taylor

A 3h Ocean-adventure with our Ambassador James Taylor, tailored to the preferences and Ocean-skills of our OM. On the table are surfing, freediving, spear-fishing, SUPing, Jet Ski etc. etc. (it’s hard to find an Ocean-activity that James doesn’t do)

'Sea Change - Return to the Wild' book

The beautiful ‘Sea Change – Return to the Wild’ book, brought to life by the Sea Change Projet which is of course also responsible for ‘My Octopus Teacher’.
To make things even better: The book will be hand-signed by Craig and Ross!

M*A*T Surfboard bag & leash

M*A*T stuck his feet to a surfboard for the first time in 1993, and he has been consumed by the sport of surfing ever since. He has ridden a wide variety of surfboard types & origins since then, looking for the right board/wave set-up combinations. This search sparked his intrigue to pursue the shaping process’s sciences further.

1l Herbiraw Salmun and e-cookbook

One full liter of @herbiraw Salmun, a delicious plant-based Salmon alternative made by the wonderful Tanita. In addition to the 1l-jar, you’ll also get her e-cookbook featuring lots of creative recipes that will help any Oceaneers on the reduction journey.

2 copies of 'Surfing in South Africa'

2 copies of ‘Surfing in South Africa’, the local surfer’s bible written by the one and only Spike from Wavescape.

Friends

Here are some of our favourite organizations that are doing amazing work in related fields, and that we proudly call our friends

Ocean Pledge is a Cape Town based grass root community that fights plastic pollution in our oceans, by giving individuals the opportunity to take a pledge on their website.
Their motto? C.A.R.E.
That’s Collaborate, Act, Respond, and Enjoy!
Great stuff!

Greenpop reconnects people with nature, all over Africa!
And they do that in amazingly creative ways – e.g. through reforestation festivals, art projects and corporate events at under-resourced schools etc.
Greenpop has been a strong source of inspiration for the creation of Oceaneers – we can’t wait for the next festival!

The Fish Welfare Initiative tries to improve the lives the up to 180bn fish (!!!) that are farmed each year. It’s now no secret anymore that fish can experience pain – that’s why we dig the great work that the FWI-crew is doing, and are proud to call them part of our extended family.

Beyond the Surface International works at the local level with remote and marginalized small-scale fishing communities, for social-ecological wellbeing. Their work is based on the belief that ‘ocean conservation is a social just issue’  – we couldn’t agree more! And we’re so excited that the Emi Koch – founder and driving force – is our 4th Oceaneer Ambassador!

Who does not get excited by a good story? The Pirates behind Captain Fanplastic use the power of storytelling and gamification to raise awareness among primary school learners in South Africa about the impact of plastic pollution in our oceans. Iggy can’t wait to get his plastic eye patch!
#NoTrashButTreasure

  The world would definitely be sadder place without Fry’s – at least for us. It’s hard to estimate how many of their plant-based nuggets we have devoured in our post-surf wraps, but it’s definitely closer to 1000 than to 0. Having Tammy Fry as ambassador makes us so proud, and the support they give to organization like us is tremendous.

 

Oceaneers

Oceaneers is a community-driven initiative created by two ocean lovers who wanted to inspire others to see that the biggest positive impact they could make to ocean sustainability was to change their food choices.
