De La Tierra is about the mission that all surfers should have in common: to leave the places we love better than we find them. Contrary to what many think, most surfboards are still produced with toxic materials. Solid Surfboards is breaking that mold. We create surfboards that have less impact on the environment than traditional boards. The mission goes further than just using sustainable materials. We try to support surf communities internationally by providing resources and sharing the love of environmental preservation. So, we added our spin to the traditional surf movie as well. Rather than doing the regular team trip where brands fly out surfers to take over a remote location, we opted to instead bring a quiver of our organic hemp reinforced BIOFlex surfboards to the local crew from Santa Teresa, CR and let them showcase our sustainable constructions.
“De La Tierra,” is created by filmmaker Sean Santiago and features Santa Teresa locals Ramon Taliani, Kenneth Calderon, Armando Perez, Lorenzo Wickstrom, and Angelo Bonomelli.
