“The Hawaiians surfed on wood. The Peruvians surfed on reed. We surf on plastic.” – Veit Juergens
The surf industry is not a green one. Our stoke after a surf hides the fact that the industry is built on plastic and chemicals. Petrochemicals.
As this month is Plastic Free July, I thought we could talk about the sustainable things happening in the surf industry and simple swaps you can make to “GREEN YOUR SURF.”
On Tuesday night, one hundred women from all corners of the south coast gathered together for a night under the stars to celebrate life, laughter, friendship and women’s surfing. Hosted by Indigo and Salt in conjunction with Sea Together Magazine for the Australian launch of their second issue, the evening was amazing! As Shelly Fitzpatrick filled the air with her beautiful voice and guitar, the huge half moon shone down on us and she smiled.
"I love that my daughter is growing up in a world where women’s equality is barely questioned. She is only 5 and I am sure she will continue to face challenges for being a women as she grows, but right now in her mind there is absolutely nothing that women can’t do, and no reason for a man to question her because she is a girl. I love that for her!"
We caught up with Caitlin Barratt, the CEO of Love Mercy Foundation recently in the surf and shared a few waves...
This is what she had to say.
It's always a good day when you get together with your lady babes!
We have been super blessed to have shared many a moment over this last year since our SUMMER 2018 campaign - and since some of us met for the first time. There is so much love within us. We are united by the sea.

Two years ago, I was lucky enough to experience a retreat with Jenna at Tallala Resort in Sri Lanka. A beachfront bungalow, surf, yoga, pilates, epic food, massages, elephant safaris and exploring... It was one of the best experiences of my life!
That's why we, at Indigo and Salt, are seriously stoked to have teemed up with Talalla Wellness and an epic bunch of businesses to bring you the ultimate sustainable surf adventure!
"It was time to call it a day. As we debriefed over lunch out of the back of our cars, the stoke was firmly etched within all of us. We couldn't wipe the smiles from our faces and we were already planning when we could do this all over again!
Best. Day. Ever!!"
