• YERÉ

    When Paddle-paddle was in Colombia

    Watch it with French, Spanish and English subtitles: http://tiny.cc/byiypz

    Yeré: a state of mind in which one shines, feels happy, thrives. It is also the title given to the video about our project in Colombia with Aurélie Andrès. A 30-minute deep dive by the Caribbean coastline, between the jungle and the mountains, where surfing is giving new future prospects to a young generation who have a long road ahead.

  • OUR MISSION

    PRESERVE OUR PLANET⎜GIVE ACCESS TO EDUCATION⎜PROMOTE ART & CULTURE

    We collect, repair & give

    TO PRESERVE THE ENVIRONMENT 🌍

    Despite the good vibes and the unconditional love for the ocean, surfing is far from being ecological. There is a lot to improve, from the conception to the recycling part.

     

    Got an old broken board? Just donate it to Paddle-paddle. We will decide with our partners Nomads Surfing if it is worth being recycled or repaired.

    We boost education

    THROUGH SURF & LOCAL ACTORS 📚

    Surfing is cool, but it's not the only thing that matters. With the help from local actors, we use surfing to raise awareness on the importance of getting a proper education for a cool job and a better future.


    Here are two girls during a class provided by our partner Costeño Social Foundation in Colombia. English, maths, but also cooking, music and yoga classes. How cool is that?

    We promote Art & Culture

    BECAUSE IT'S KIND OF COOL ✌️

    Culture and art were created to tell stories and change people's perception on life (usually for the best). Because it helps to create a smarter future, we decided to include paint, music, photography, and video as the third priority in our mission.

  • HELPING MORE

    SURFERS, THIS IS WHAT WE NEED

    SURFBOARDS

    Used or new

    Any shape or size

    Even if broken in half, because we can recycle it and you probably can't.

    SURF EQUIPMENT

    Used or new, we are a dream place for lonely fins or broken leashes

    Fins, leashes, but also wax, boardshorts, wetsuits and sunscreen.

    DONATIONS

    Even a small one

    ...but the bigger, the better

    Because we only go to remote locations, transportation costs a lot of money. We definitely need help on this part.
