EpicSurf announces new green and inclusivity commitments
EpicSurf announced this week “The EPIC Promise” which the company says provides a snapshot of its values, ongoing efforts, and commitment towards sustainability.
“As leaders within the wave system design and manufacturing industry for over 50+ years,” the company said in a statement. “We are passionate about creating an inclusive and safe surfing experience beyond the ocean while maintaining our commitment to environmentally responsible and sustainable practices.”
According to the International Surfing Association, there are 17 to 35 million surfers worldwide, making surfing one of the fastest-growing sports on the planet. Driven by the popularity of Olympic inclusion, lifestyle brands, surf tourism and manmade waves – the numbers continue to grow. Aquatic Development Group stated they are thrilled to be a part of this rapidly evolving industry via their deep-water, stationary wave, EpicSurf.
The company added that along with the connection to an ocean-inspired sport comes an increased awareness of a vulnerable changing world and our corporate responsibility to ensure environmentally sustainable and people-focused practices.
