Steve Surfboards was created as an idea to reduce the environmental impact of surfboard manufacturing, rethinking the process of surfboard building with focus on sustainability and reusing materials. Creating functional art. In 2020, The Trash Traveler and Steve became friends and since then “The Trash Wave” was born. Their first project “The Fresh Fish From The Fridge” has been a surfboard made of the isolation of a wrongly discarded fridge, cigarette butts, ocean plastics and even a trousers they found in nature.

“The Fresh Fish From The Fridge” and “The Left-Over-Fabrics Board” for the outdoor company “Jack Wolfskin” who wanted to show with us the importance of closing the loop in production processes to reuse left over materials and work towards a circular economy. Are you inspired now? Let’s think about some projects that can raise awareness!
We do custom awareness projects, so if you won’t find anything in here, you can just send us an email and we brainstorm about a project together.
