If you’ve never heard of Groundswell and curious as to what this organization is about, keep reading…
Started in 2012, Groundswell Supply is a company that sells high quality products for the surf and ocean lifestyle, providing a complete line of well chosen and durable products for the surfer. They offer custom surfboards and paddle boards, custom made wetsuits, several surf apparel lines, surf accessories, sunglasses, artwork, and a list of other needed items to be in the water.
So, what makes them different than most other online stores?
Groundswell puts a high priority on giving back and providing products that are making a difference. Trevor Berge, founder of Groundswell Supply, explained to us the vision behind forming this company.
“As a surfer for over 30 years, I wanted to create a community for surfers and people that make high quality products to converge. There is so much mass produced product out there that I have not been satisfied with as a surfer… The goal is to supply products made with passion and purpose, that are making a difference.”
Groundswell has partnered with several other non-profits in the surf community, including Christian Surfers, Urban Surf 4 Kids, Beautiful Feet, Walking on Water, and Friends of Bethany, alongside having partners in Swaziland and Mozambique who are providing empowerment through the production of wallets, backpacks, and beanies.
“We have a lot of hand made, custom made products and are adding more all the time… it is our desire to be a light in the surf community and to demonstrate what we believe in through the way we treat the customer and all who come in contact.”
Thank you Groundswell, for your care for the community! (And for providing quality products that we can trust). Visit Groundswell’s website at www.groundswellsupply.com.
