Guarda do Embaú to officially dedicate World Surfing Reserve in October ceremony


Save The Waves is excited to join the Local Stewardship Council as we officially dedicate Guarda do Embaú in Santa Catarina, Brazil as the 9th World Surfing Reserve!

This incredible surf ecosystem is rich in biodiversity, local culture and world class waves. Guarda is a national treasure and one of the most unique and visually stunning WSRs to date.

After years of stewardship planning and meticulous development of a management plan, the Local Stewardship Council is ready to unveil Guarda do Embaú to the surf and conservation community. The dedication will include an interpretative tour of the Reserve, workshops on surf ecosystem protection, speeches by local legends and, of course, a proper party Brazilian style!

The dedication and ceremonies will be hosted from October 25 – 27, 2019.
