    E48. Kathryn Keating of RenewBluSurf: Saving The Oceans For A Cleaner and Safer Surf

    E48. Kathryn Keating of RenewBluSurf: Saving The Oceans For A Cleaner and Safer Surf

    The waves are our home… and it’s in danger. Ocean plastics and unsustainable industries threaten the world we live in, not only our oceans. In this episode, we meet Kathryn Keating, the woman behind RenewBluSurf, promoting and maintaining clean ocean waters and a healthy coastal environment one surf product at a time.

    Living on Long Beach Island, Kathryn Keating formed an early and deep love for the ocean and the coastal environment. From sunrise walks to waiting for the right wave, she noticed the impacts of humankind on the beaches. Following her passion, she co-founded RenewBluSurf to offer 100% eco-friendly products to surfers, teach the community on the effects they have and give back through profit-sharing with a local ocean-based foundation.

    E47. Lesley Zonnekein of Surf Neutral: Making Artisan Surfboards Globally On-Hand

    E47. Lesley Zonnekein of Surf Neutral: Making Artisan Surfboards Globally On-Hand

    In this episode of Saltwater High, we will introduce you to Lesley Zonnekein and let you in on a great hack, especially if you are keen on surfing trips or simply stoked about handcrafted artisan surfboards! 

    Surf Neutral is a platform that lets you connect to shapers wherever they are and wherever you may be—bringing surfers closer to surfboard shapers through the boards made. The brainchild of Lesley’s love for surfing and extensive background in IT gives you access to hard-to-find and unique surfboards crafted by local shapers, aiming to keep the stoke globally on-hand, anytime and anywhere.

    Surf Neutral is designed so shapers can use the Surf Neutral blueprint to get a complete shaper profile and digitize and rent out their surfboards with insurance. In addition, Surf Neutral enables surfboard craftsmen to track and keep their portfolios and the history of the boards made online. Surf Neutral introduced a unique QR code for each uploaded board. A scan of the code reveals information about the board,  the shaper, the location, and the surfer surfing it. Based on the work done over the years, Surf Neutral is in the process of making a new marketplace in 2022 for shapers and surfers, introducing surfboard NFT sales.

    Music and surfing harbor a tight bond that adds more fuel to the stoke. In this episode, get to know the Northern Californian band, The SoulShake, who spreads positivity and speaks love and life through heartfelt music inspired by Jason Mraz and the instrumental musical stylings of Sublime.

    Domenic Bianco, Charlie Sisemore, John Hendricks, and Jake Stillman share how they mothered a band from scratch and helped each other hone their inner hidden musical geniuses while getting through disagreements and forming a bond more than just as band members.

    Tinker Bell surfboard and shark cages? That is just bibs and bobs of the fun and wacky that is in this episode. Do not forget to stay at the end for a quick serenade.

    E44. Lori Mallini of Protea Zero Waste: Hawaii's First Zero-Waste Refill Store

    E44. Lori Mallini of Protea Zero Waste: Hawaii's First Zero-Waste Refill Store

    This episode features Lori Mallini, the founder of Protea Zero Waste, Hawaii's first zero-waste refill store, encouraging people worldwide to embrace the zero-waste lifestyle to lessen the need to use and produce plastic, which only ends up in landfills or in our oceans and destroys our planet, people’s health, and marine life.

    Lori is an environmentalist and policy advocate with a degree in Environmental Studies from Hawaii Pacific University. Originally from Houston, TX, Lori grew up near the largest petrochemical hub in the country. This is where the beginning stages of plastic production occur and communities near her home are severely impacted by the effects of this process. 

    Lori now lives across the world in Kailua, Hawaii, where beaches and wildlife are severely impacted by the end life of plastic. She has spent her time in Hawaii advocating with Sierra Club Hawaii at the state legislature and city council for waste management, plastic reduction, and recycling bills. While change at the top is important, Lori realized that it's equally important to make positive change at the community level, which is why she decided to open Protea Zero Waste Store.
