Inclusive by nature, the GWC sought to make the event as accessible as possible. With ADA venue access, discounted student rates, free mentorship programs for local students, and complimentary registration for international nonprofit organizations, the GWC is clearly focused on uniting the global marine conservation community as much as possible. The ethos of the event also promoted equal access to the surf assets that inspire this community to protect it. The Save The Waves Film Festival included a screening of Juul Hesselberth’s film about female surfers, sponsorship issues, and objectification called, “Just Go F****** Surfing”.
