Oasis Reunion at The Inertia EVOLVE Summit in LA with @ryanharris and @alisonsadventures!! 💕 Back in October 2017 on our way to LAX to catch a flight to our “other” home @oasissurfhouse in The Canary Islands we swung by Ryan’s Shaping Factory @earthtechnologies in LA to pick up a hot pink “Stoke Life” board for Alison. And so it was born the @earthtechnologgies, @alisonsadventures, @thestokelife collab adventure!💕 Alison landed in Lanzarote airport in The Canary Islands 🇮🇨 1 hour before us! We all piled in the car and drove over to Oasis where, for the next 9 days, we would go on a whirlwind adventure scanning the whole island for waves and craziness. We showed her the unique vineyards, the pirates castle, the underground lava tunnels and the mysterious green lagoon and of course surf, surf & more surf!💕 Great to see these awesome friends @theinertia evolve summit ☺️ Swipe for photos of Alison in Lanzarote by @jacquesvaphotography & @bom_photography . . #evolvesummit #evolvesurfoutdoors #plasticpollution #reduceplastic #plasticocean #plasticawareness #ecoboard #earthtechnologies #ecosurf #sustainablesurf #ryanharrisshapes #surfboardindustry #sustainabilityandinnovation #alisonsadventures #oasissurfhouse #theinertia #thestokelife

Great to see Kelly & Kalani @ the SIMA WATERMANS BALL 2018. Lydia asked @KellySlater (11x World Champion) if he’s ever been to Lanzarote and the answer was “actually, I’ve never been to the Canary Islands” so of course we invited him to Oasis!! 😜 . . 📷 by Lydia #watermansball #sima #SurfIndustryManufactueresAssociation #wsl #WorldSurfLeague #sima2018 #kellyslater #kalanimiller #oasissurfhouse #surfindustry #surfingtribe #thestokelife

REPOST FROM OWNERS OF OASIS @thestokelife The surf industry has always been all about protecting our oceans. For the last 28 years, the tribe has come together through the gathering that is WATERMAN’s to raise more than $7 million for 15 ocean groups that serve on the front lines of ocean protection, conservation and surf break preservation. . Last night after a FULL-ON day at the beach for the @usopenofsurf, changing in our van, not showering but feeling fab we attended the SIMA Waterman’s Ball 2018 @ The Ranch, Laguna Beach for a night under the stars featuring a farm to table dinner, cocktails and celebration of everything surf. Somehow we pulled off the “fresh” look and dove straight into this incredible night... AND what a night it was !! 🤙 . Honoring: (1) @wsl + Dirk and Natasha Ziff Watermen of the Year (2) Doug and Kris Tompkins (founders of @thenorthface and former CEO of @patagonia) Environmentalists of the Year (3) Wayne Rabbit Bartholomew Lifetime Achievement Award . To help raise money towards this amazing cause @thestokelife donated a 4 night stay at our Surf House in The Canary Islands @oasissurfhouse in the silent auction.. Mark wanted to put our sticker down to get the bidding going 😜 but somebody had already beaten us to it!💪 . Lydia asked @KellySlater (11x World Champion) if he’s ever been to Lanzarote and the answer was “actually, I’ve never been to the Canary Islands” so of course we invited him to Oasis!! 😜 . . #watermansball #SIMA #SurfIndustryManufacturersAssociation #wsl #WorldSurfLeague #sima2018 #kellyslater #surfinglegends #surfindustry #surfingtribe #swipe👉👉👉 #thestokelife #oasissurfhouse
