As surfers and ocean lovers, the global ocean is more than just our favorite place to play. It's our arena, our office, and our inspiration.

The global ocean, its waves and beaches, reefs and high seas, is truly our greatest resource and connector.

We're committed to protecting our one ocean and preserving it for generations to come.

WSL One Ocean is a global initiative from World Surf League aimed at protecting the ocean to preserve the future of surfing for generations to come. Working in collaboration with WSL's non-profit partner, WSL PURE, WSL One Ocean engages fans and hosts event-based activations throughout the WSL Championship Tour season with local WSL PURE grantee organizations. WSL PURE funds ocean protection around the world through a grant program for grassroots nonprofits focused on WSL priorities of coastal restoration and conservation, eliminating plastic and taking climate action.
