The collection points

We collect in surf stores and through friends.

  • A number of stores work with us, they accept boards and equipment. You can always visit a store during opening hours.
  • Our friends and the Provide the Silde team organize private collection points, especially in areas with no stores nearby. Here you have to set a date with us in advance for the handover.

Repair

  • We inspect all boards and repair damages that will reduce the life span of the board.
  • All boards will be registered and get our Provide the Silde logo sprayed on them.

Complete Board Packages

  • We try to send only complete board packages as much as possible. That means every board comes with fins, a leash and at best a board-bag and also wax to its new owner.
  • Without fins and leash you can't surf very well, a bag increases the life span enormously. That's why it's so important that you donate bags, single fins and everything else don’t need yourself for surfing.

Sale and Exchange for Eccessories

  • So far we received more bare boards than fin sets, bags and leashes. To get complete sets we exchange or sell selected boards. We sell about 10% of the boards and always make sure that we get a good deal.
  • We do need cash for shipping: customs fees, containerspace, and transportationto the destination (e.g. by truck).

Accessories Donation

  • We only send "complete" board sets with fins, a leash and at best a bag.
  • Fins, leashes and bags are always missing. Also wax, fin keys and screws are often missing. Even a single fin helps, because we can make complete new sets from leftover equipment.
  • Wetsuits are as hard to get in the destination areas as the boards themselves.

Share Our Project

  • The more people know about our project, the more boards and equipment we get.
  • Whether word of mouth or social media, every recommendation helps.

Donate Money

  • Until the boards arrive at their destinations, some costs occur. For example we have to buy accessories for creating "complete" surfboard packages (fins, leash and wax).
  • Also,the costs for container space, customs and transport in Europe and Africa have to be covered.
  • We are a non-profit association and issue donation receipts. Here you can find our bank details.
