"From Plastic To Fantastic" now on display through November 2016

Read The OC Register write up on the exhibit HERE.
The exhibition "From Plastic to Fantastic" illustrates how plastic bottles and other materials are being recycled and transformed into sustainable products by some of today’s leading surf industry brands. On display are examples of innovative, environmentally-friendly products made from recycled materials that would otherwise be stacking up in our landfills. Visitors can also take home tips on what they can be doing everyday to help remedy our plastic pollution issues. Some of the participants include: A-Frame Photo, Betty Belts, Billabong, Bloom, Bureo, ecoFins, Enjoy Handplanes, Firewire, Grain Surfboards, Hurley, Indosole Footwear, Lost Surfboards, Mafia Bags, Marko Foam, Rodney Rodrigo Mccoubrey, Jim Olarte, Outerknown, Patagonia, David Puu, Quiksilver, ReCork/Surf Traction Pads, the Recover Upcycled Textile System, Repreve, Resin and Grain, Ruby Moon, Slater Designs, Suga Yoga Mats, Surfline Great Breaks, Surfrider, Sustainable Surf, This 1 Bag, Thread, and VISSLA.

Two CUSD High School Seniors Pen Winning Essays in SHACC Scholarship Contest 
Adding an educational component to “From Plastic to Fantastic,” SHACC invited high school seniors in the Capistrano Unified School District to participate in an essay contest on the topic: “Problems and Solutions to Plastic Pollution.”  SHACC is pleased to announce that Ila Jane Foskett and Joseph Bell, both students of San Clemente High School, have each been selected to receive a $1,000.00 scholarship.

Recyle/Upcycle Contest!
We've teamed up with Sustainable Surf and their Waste to Waves program and are inviting all SHACC visitors to help ACTIVATE  the "From Plastic to Fantastic" exhibit, by bringing in their own "trash" (otherwise known as a resource...) to be upcycled or recycled into your next  piece of surf gear–become part of the solution to plastic pollution–everyone who brings in a "resource" to be upcycled or recycled gets entered into a drawing for some of the same products on display at the exhibit.

Resources (clean) to be collected at SHACC from August 27 through the end of November: styrofoam packaging, wine corks, wetsuits and kiteboard sails. 

The exhibition runs through November. We now have the catalog for the exhibit available, drop by SHACC for a complementary copy.

Digital Watermarking of our images – Public Notice

As part of our commitment to protecting our image donors, the Surfing Heritage Foundation has begun using digital watermarking on ALL of our images, including those images seen on our website. This watermark is not visible to the eye, but is easily seen by many computer programs such at Photoshop and other image editing programs. In addition, we have also purchased a “watermark spider” that crawls the Internet specifically looking for any images that contain our SHF watermark. The Surfing Heritage Foundation is prepared to take the appropriate action should we find any illegal or unlicensed usage of images from our files.
