SOS – Save our Surf is back to join one of the major national events, this time for a project developed by Buondi, a brand that has been closely linked to surfing for a long time.

Raising awareness and alerting people to a number of threats to the coast and the need for behaviour change are the main objectives of Human Tide, the largest beach initiative in the world, sponsored by Buondi in conjunction with the European Blue Flag Association. The date is scheduled for the morning of 12th May at 20 beaches in 20 districts of mainland Portugal and the Portuguese islands.

To launch these initiatives called ‘ALERTS’, Human Tide will have the involvement of municipalities, children and young Eco-Schools, scouts and surfers as well as the entire population, who are asked to participate in these set of initiatives of educational and
environmental awareness. Biodiversity, waste, water quality, sustainable fisheries and solar
radiation are some of the issues that this huge beach initiative wants to highlight to the community.

Human Tide will end with a solemn and symbolic moment, in which all participants – both on land and at sea – will hold hands for a united cause: the protection of the coast.

Associated with surfing for over 20 years by shared values ​such as youth innovation, respect
and concern for the environment, Buondi now promotes HumanTide in defence of a  territory that belongs to everyone. To learn more about Human Tide, visit
