What would kiting be without a healthy ocean? Clean water, functioning marine habitat and stable wind are the cornerstones of our sport. The sea belongs to everyone and it is our calling as watersports enthusiasts to take the extra steps to protect it. More than just a playground for our sport, our living body of waters allow us to breathe thanks to the essential work of regulating the climate and providing 50% of the oxygen necessary for the survival of the entire ecosystem. This consideration was the starting point from which the team at Sardinia Grand Slam decided to do their part.

This is how “Give SEA a chance” was born, an event that aims to emphasize the emergency surrounding pollution of our seas and in particular, the damage caused by plastics, which are destroying the marine ecosystems, killing animals and poisoning our waters.

The aim of this event is to help to spread the adoption of criteria of sustainability and a culture of awareness towards the importance of respecting, defending and loving the sea.

“Give SEA a Chance” will run simultaneously during the Sardinia Grand Slam kite racing event at the Village of Sardinia Grand Slam and offer 5 days of action to celebrate, support and protect the sea.

The Village of the Sardinia Grand Slam will be set up at the 6th stop of Poetto Beach and will be open every day from the 6th-10th of October, 2021 from 9:30 AM to 6:30 PM

Each day features new and exciting projects including a beach cleanup, creative recycling and educational workshops as well as daily social inclusion initiatives.
