The Help Factor

  • Book your trip and you will be able to plant your tree in the Surfers’ Forest. This initiative is an amazing nonprofit project created by the Surf Camp Las Palmas with the main aim is to provide surfers the chance to demonstrate their commitment to nature by reforesting Gran Canaria. In this way we can compensate the carbon footprint surfing creates e.g. caused by producing surfboards and wetsuits or traveling.
