2015 Creators & Innovators Upcycle Contest: find and transform

The Surfrider Foundation and VISSLA have teamed to launch the 2015 Creators & Innovators Upcycle Contest.

The goal is to challenging you transform an old or found object into something to be used in the ocean, i.e., a functional wave riding craft such as a surfboard, surf fin, skimboard, alaia, paipo, boat or hand plane.

Do you want to join the 2015 Creators & Innovators Upcycle Contest? Submit a video or between three and six photographs showing your project from start to finish by September 12th.

Judges will pick four finalists in two categories - Under 16 and Open divisions - and they will ask you to send in your project for verification and final voting.

All finalists will be awarded exclusive prizes and invited to an event gallery show to have their final object on display. Winners will be announced at the final event on October 3rd, 2015. uses cookies to ensure you get the best experience on our website. Learn more on our About section.
