working with ST. LUCIA SURF CLUB
St Lucia is the Southern most bay at the former Greater St. Lucia Wetlands Park. Starting at Maphelane, it stretches North (covering 220km of coastline) to Kosi Bay and the Mocambique border. Renamed Isimangaliso (place of wonder) in 2007, it was declared a World Heritage Site. The park encompasses 3 major lake systems, which include 4 RAMSAR sites, as well as 5 interlinking ecosystems.
In 2012 we started co-operative development with Mario from Voodoo Surf, manufacturing regionally specific product and branding it St. Lucia Surf Club.
