Skagen’s partnership with SAVE THE WAVES furthers our commitment to global sustainability (SV 2300). Together, we’re working to protect fragile global ecosystems and raise awareness about the incredible importance of preserving our oceans for today and future generations.

LET’S PROTECT THE
PLACES WE LOVE

These coastal ecosystems are some of the most biodiverse on Earth.
Let’s work together to protect them.

COASTAL
DEVELOPMENT

Harbours, jetties, seawalls, coastal protection, breakwaters and beachfront construction can destroy or alter both waves and coastal ecosystems.

WATER QUALITY &
WATERSHED DEGRADATION

Industrial waste, fertilisers, sewage, toxic waste and pesticides have negative effects on the health of surfers and nearshore marine life around the world.

SEA LEVEL RISE &
COASTAL EROSION

While coastal erosion is perfectly natural, development along the coast has made it worse, and climate-change induced sea-level rise has made it much worse.

PLASTIC RUBBISH &
MARINE DEBRIS

Plastic rubbish and marine debris impact the coastal environment, economy and the health and safety of surfers and marine life in surf ecosystems.

LOSS OF ACCESS

Development and privatisation of the coast cuts off local access and enjoyment to some of the most beautiful places in the world.
