Ervik Plastics Initiative – WIP

A Little Side Project for the Sea.

On a recent trip to Norway we (Luke McCabe and I) decided to have a little free time and try to find some surf after the shoot. We didn’t find surf but we did met Calle the owner of the Ervik Surf Shop.

The shop is setup in an old animal barn in the shadow of a an enormous cliff Calle refers to as ‘the Wall’. Calle’s and his surfing buddies often comb the beach to collect for plastics which he explained travel all the way from the Americas along the Gulf Stream. They have setup a group called the Nordic Ocean Watch, and together have collected over 2 tons of plastic from 2 beaches in just 2 seasons.

We could resist the opportunity to unpack the camera gear and ask Calle all about it.

Final project coming soon.
