Get Involved, Become an Ocean Guardian

Bodhi Surf + Yoga is very committed to doing our part to make the world a better, safer, and healthier place to live, and we do so by utilizing our business as a tool to create awareness and education. You may be thinking to yourself, "I want to be part of this, how can I contribute?". We think it’s great that you want to get involved — after all, widespread, lasting change only happens when we all do our part. Bodhi’s Ocean Guardians is a way for you to connect to this campaign and its surrounding network of changemakers!

How to get involved

Our goal is for visitors of Bodhi Surf + Yoga to leave with a closer connection to our oceans, a greater interest in improving the health of our marine ecosystem, and a desire to start their own Ocean Guardian journey. However, you can get involved even before you come down on your surf and yoga vacation with us!

Sign the Ocean Guardian Pledge

The Ocean Guardian Pledge is a voluntary commitment to be the change. After signing the pledge you will receive monthly Ocean Guardian Newsletter emails which will provide you with actions that you can easily take in your own household. It will also provide you with additional resources on current environmental issues and policy. Meaningful change doesn’t mean that you have to alter all of your habits overnight, in fact, a more realistic goal is to take achievable, well-thought out steps and to continue challenging yourself to do better every month!

Enter the Ocean Guardian Contest

Participate in our annual Ocean Guardian Contest, a space to showcase your commitment to environmental protection and your innovation in tackling a complex issue. You will be eligible to win some great prizes, including the illustrious grand prize of a week-long surf and yoga camp for two here at Bodhi Surf + Yoga in Uvita, Costa Rica!

Support the Bodhi Wave documentary

The Bodhi Wave documentary tells the optimistic story of how a small surf and yoga camp with big dreams became a tool for pro-environmental change. Its goal is to raise awareness about challenges of unsustainable tourism practices and development in Costa Rica in hopes of inspiring others to forge another path. The film is due to be out in 2018!
