Ryan Lovelace just started a Kickstarter project to reduce the negative footprint the surfboard industry has on the environment...
"My project is all about environmental and community responsibility. I want to build a line of environmentally friendly-er surfcraft to offer at an upcoming art show and auction, then pay it forward by donating the profit from the show to a great local organization. The boards will bring attention to environmentally conscious surfboard building materials while allowing me to expand my horizons as a small business and at the same time donate a lump of cash to a worthy cause...I can't think of anything better!
If you've got the ability and the heart, please consider making a donation and spread the message. This is a 30 day project so I'm going to be doing anything and everything I can in those 30 days to spread the word. All it takes is 720 people do put in $25 each, not such an unattainable goal! ..Especially when I know that 500-ish people look at this blog alone every morning (yeeeeeeeah I'm lookin' at you!). So even if you just pass on the word and a link to the project to some friends it'll mean a world of good for what I do AND the mission of the Save Naples Coalition...what could be better!?!?!?!?"
