LIFE AT SEA
OCEAN CLEANUP

$50,000 donated for OCEAN CLEAN UP and other environmental programs. Many thanks to our customers and all shops who carry our lines!

This milestone donation was achieved directly through purchases of Life At Sea products – a portion of the proceeds will continue to support clean waters and oceans for our planet. Our next goal – to reach $100,000!

Between toxic spills, leaks, runoff, and litter, there are many ways our waters are polluted. Regardless of where the primary causes lie, we will always need effective cleanup. So we decided to give a portion of our proceeds to forward effective water clean up technologies and their implementation.

Life At Sea has joined forces with The Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization, which works rigorously to implement effective water cleanup solutions for chemical and industrial spills. The Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization’s educational materials are being used globally to inform industry and environmental protection and health officials about effective spill clean up. We are proud to work with this incredible group.

ABOUT TIM WARD

Growing up in Santa Cruz, California -famous for its surfing, skateboarding and art scene- Tim Ward began each of these adventures at an early age.

Tim created art with a great crew of friends, including photographer Dave “Nelly” Nelson, Tony Roberts / TR Productions, and professional skateboarder/artist Keith Meek.

As a kid just out of high school, Ward’s art was beginning to get some notice. Santa Cruz’s O’neill Wetsuits approached Tim to create some designs.  He went to work in Jack O’neill’s art department and got his jumpstart as a professional designer. After a creative run with O’neill, Tim began his own art and design studio.

Tim has created a wide array of internationally recognized art in the surfing and skateboarding industries. His beautiful oil paintings decorate many homes.  And now Ward is running his own brands, namely LIFE AT SEA - Tim’s popular line of stickers, patches, keychains, etc. – all adorned with his signature style and ocean-themed designs.

LIFE AT SEA has donated $50,000 to ocean cleanup, an endeavor which Tim built in to the company on day one. Life At Sea graphic products are seen around the globe, and Tim continues to paint, draw, surf and skate… keep an eye out for new art and designs – there are always new projects on the drawing board!

Hometown Huck

The HOMETOWN HUCK is our BEST-MANEUVER / SURF-VIDEO CONTEST for SANTA CRUZ surfers.

$10,000 FIRST PRIZE!   Plus: top-ten clips awarded cash prizes.
Life At Sea, straight out of Santa Cruz, California.

The Life At Sea Hometown Huck is a Wrap!

Congratulations to winner Noah “Waggy” Wegrich and filmer Perry Gershkow!
Check out the video!


WHY THE HUCK?!

We’ve managed to sell a few stickers and patches and stuff—and Santa Cruz has given opportunities for which we’d love to give something back!

Started in Santa Cruz with artwork by Tim Ward, Life At Sea is cranking out ocean-themed stickers, hats, patches, and more.  Tim got his start as a kid in SC, designing for friends at O’neill, TR Productions, Santa Cruz Surf Shop, Pacific Wave and more. Crazy times surfing, skating and creating with fellow artist’s like Tony Roberts, Nelly and Meekster—and witnessing the town’s most radical surfer’s and skaters from Kevin Reed forward.

Taking it back to these roots, Life At Sea is throwing down some cash for best surfing maneuver on video!

Have fun with the Hometown Huck and remember the Real Santa Cruz!
