Promoting Safety and Preservation
Our PSI Vest adds an unprecedented safety element when surfing the world's biggest waves. By offering the vest's patented technology to the industry in exchange for a fee, we were able to make our first donation of $150,000 to the Fundación Punta De Lobos, helping to preserve an iconic Chilean Point Break. This donation gets the Fundación closer to what is needed to fully protect one of the best lefthand points on the globe.
“Turning five years of research and development into a program where we use our intellectual property to persuade others in the industry to help protect a threatened surf break is another point of difference for our surf business,” says Jason McCaffrey, Patagonia’s senior director of surf.
