Boardmasters Surf Festival!
Buenos dias beautiful people,
Our discount will be running until August the 5th so get in there fast!
Of course, you're probably wondering what sort of badass news could have floated into the Mangata HQ to encourage this limited time offer..
Well, here’s your answer…
Yup. We’re road tripping it down to Cornwall and parking up on the golden shores of Fistral Beach for this year’s Boardmasters Festival.
It’s sun, sand, surf and skating. It’s watching the world’s best boarders rip through the waves and the hottest acts skip across the mainstage, the masses chanting along from the clifftop setting, as this perfect pocket of the planet comes to life - George Ezra, Chemical Brothers, Rag N’ Bone Man, Catfish And The Bottlemen and half-a-million more.
And we’ll be right there amongst it all. So drop whatever plans you might have and head south for the weekend of August 8th to August 12th, and come say hi because we’ll be selling our ocean-saving shorts a la playa from the first sunrise to the final note of George Ezra’s ‘Riding Shotgun’.
But we’re not just taking our first annual pilgrimage to Cornwall so we can throw ourselves into an event that’s been built on big waves and bigger beats. We’re going to be part of something that’s close to our hearts and bigger than all of us, and that’s protecting the ocean, something championed by the festival’s official sponsor: Surfers Against Sewage. If you’ve not stumbled across their name before, they’re a badass charity that’s tackling plastic pollution one bottle and one bag at a time. That’s right. Not all superheroes wear capes, some wear ripped jeans and ride surfboards.
In all seriousness though, from the beach down, they’re focused on saving the world and clearing the ocean of discarded plastic. They educate the blissfully unaware everydayers on why there’s no excuse for single use and they take on corporate culprits, reminding them there is no Planet B. From changing buyer-behaviours to organising big and small beach clean-ups, reinventing industry standards to stopping post-consumer plastic entering the ocean’s ecosystem at every source, these guys and gals are the real rockstars of our generation.
That’s why we are donating 5% of every dime we make at this year’s Boardmasters to Surfers Against Sewage - the most phenomenal charity riding the waves today.
And with all that said, there are only a few things left for you to do and that’s: seas the day, grab yourself the deal of the summer, save the planet with a pair of our sustainable trunks, and stayed glued to our Insta-account where we’ll be posting updates, highlights, teasers and all the goss.
Oh, and to celebrate this in true Mangata-style, we have some new designs swimming your way in the next couple of weeks. So grab the nearest newspaper, roll it up into a makeshift megaphone and start spreading the word because, you and us, we can play our part in protecting the planet. So long as you guys keep wearing them, we’ll keep turning plastic bottles into stylish beachwear.
Thanks for reading,
The Mangata Team x
