Protection of the marine environment and the world’s outstanding surf areas. From the world known epic waves to the national/regional known.

Surf & Nature Alliance’s Marine Environment and Surfbreaks Protection Program proactively identifies, designates and preserves outstanding surf zones around the world. SNA empowers local communities with long-term conservation strategies to find legal protection of their surf zones. SURF RESERVES are created with the Triple Validation Method developed by our scientists, a highly efficient methodology to protect in different scales and levels. 

Our conservation program takes three steps:


Identifying waves with special threats or unique factors to preserve them. We encourage our network of activists, local communities and citizens to act as #ThreatenedWave Detectors and directly report us any endangered surfbreak or coastline.

It is a multi-scale conservation program developed in different levels.
