Test of the new Patagonia in Iceland

NSM went to Iceland last week to test the new Patagonia Yulex coming this fall. A new plant-based material, FSC certified. Bad habits change aint easy but let’s face it, we need to adapt our behaviour. In 1972, when clean climbing became an issue in the US, Yvon Chouinard began manufacturing removable chocks… 2016 might be the beginning of the end of neopren.

Watch all the photos from the trip to Iceland here and we tell you more about the Yulex in the next issue of Nordic Surfers Mag.

The Plastic Project

The Plastic Project is entering its fifth year and is going from strength to strength. After spending ten years working on a surf magazine as well as being a freelance surf photographer, Tim Nunn came to a decision. He could no longer keep going to some of the remotest coastlines of the world without speaking out about the catastrophic pollution that was affecting them.
