Rerip Partners with Patagonia Surf to Offer Surfboard Recycling in Ventura

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Ventura, California – August 11, 2011 – Rerip and Patagonia partner again to provide a surfboard recycling location in Ventura County. Fletcher Chouinard Designs (Patagonia Surf) is now accepting surfboards for recycling, becoming the newest Rerip recycling location and the second Patagonia store, in addition to the Cardiff-by-the-Sea location.

Fletcher Chouinard Designs not only sells environmentally friendly surf gear, boards and apparel, they also financially support local environmental causes. They kicked off the board recycling location during their August 27th board swap, where employees and attendees donated nearly a dozen boards in only a few hours.

Surfboards in any condition can be dropped off at any of the Rerip recycling locations, including Patagonia Cardiff and Ventura, Noll Surfboards in San Clemente, and Coconut Pete’s in San Diego. Surfable and repairable boards are donated to local and international youth programs or resold at low prices to support the recycling program. Unrideable boards and remnants are used for the Rerip artist network and research and development opportunities.
