Anne-Marie Reichman-Totah: Located on Maui, Hawaii, USA
“I am so in love with nature! Whether I am in the water or on land. Nature is so healing in any so many ways. As an athlete, healer, mother, wife and founder of this event, it is time to unite stronger, give back and heal our planet, because she needs your help.”
Janneke Smits-Van Leeuwen: Located in Gouda, the Netherlands
“I am born and raised on the water. Water cleans, water connects, water gives life, water keeps us alive. It will always be important to my life, but also to yours and your kids, so we need to take care of it. Keep it clean, please.”
Joanne Hamilton-Vale: Located in Victoria, Australia
“ The environment gives us the most amazing playgrounds. It is time for us to give back. Do your bit”
Juliette Ball: Located in South Africa and Turkey
“We live today as if we do not need to care about tomorrow, our life has become disposable and our planet is suffering. We need to stop this today, educate, clean up, say no to plastic where we can – be the difference. Take care of our environment so that it can take care of us, and so that we can enjoy its natural beauty for years to come”.
Morene Dekker: Located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands
“I do clean ups for a while now. I was part of a world wide 24 hour clean up in 2014 with LiveLoveSUP. I think clean ups are important, but the care for clean drinking water is just as important to me. The water quality in ‘IJmeer” and Amsterdam where I paddle, is pretty good, but it can be better. That’s why I organize clean ups every once and a while. And off course when I see trash while I SUP, I pick it up. We need to be the example here”
Plastic Tides: Located in Santa Cruz California & Brooklyn USA
“As paddlers, looking out for our playground is second nature, but it’s not so natural for everyone. Being on the front lines, on the water, it’s our job to inspire the rest of the world to pitch in for a sustainable future. This is what the Green Wave is all about.”
SUPCleanUp: Located in Gouda and Friesland, the Netherlands
“United we stand, divided we fall.
By increasing the SUPclean-up movement, we reduce the contribution to the Plastic Soup”
SUP 11 Crew: Located in Leeuwarden, Netherlands & Europe.
“As the SUP 11 CREW, we set example for everyone at the event.
We are committed on land and on the water to help out with the daily clean ups and we like to Go Green where we can. We hope that everyone who comes to the SUP 11-City Tour, will go home Greenly motivated to educate their Ohana at home.”
Trashyselfie Project: Located in Maui, Hawaii.
“The idea came from Hawaii but the community is spread around the world. Our mantras are “Progress over Perfection” and “When done together and consistently, small actions = big impact”. We love to connect with like-minded movements such as the SUP 11 Green Wave Movement to feel inspired and empowered.”
