Surf with a Legend and Support Ocean Science Research

Surf with a Legend and Support Ocean Science Research

Join pro-surfing legend Kelly Slater for a weekend at his Surf Ranch as part of a new fundraising campaign that benefits WSL PURE and the Center for Climate and Life.

Kelly Slater and fundraising platform Omaze are behind a new campaign that offers surfing enthusiasts the chance to win an opportunity to surf Slater’s exclusive wave. For the first time, Slater will open the doors of his Surf Ranch in Lemoore, California to one lucky fan and their guest for a weekend surf getaway.

The funds raised by the campaign benefit WSL PURE, the philanthropic initiative of the World Surf League, dedicated to supporting ocean health through the key areas of research, education and advocacy. Every donation supports critical efforts to help heal the world’s oceans through WSL PURE’s partnership with Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, the Center for Climate and Life and the School for Professional Studies at Columbia University.

WSL PURE is currently focusing on four ocean science research projects: Oceans and Climate, Ocean Health and Ecosystems, Carbon Uptake and Ocean Acidification, and Sea Level Rise and Coral Reefs. The knowledge generated by these studies will increase our understanding of ocean ecosystems and health, scientists’ ability to predict extreme weather events, and reduce the costs associated with them. By creating a generation of “surfer scientists,” WSL PURE aspires to use this new knowledge to engage global citizens in finding real-world solutions to ocean health problems.
