Maria's Eco Surf Wax was formulated by 9-year old local surfer and Rincon resident, Brooklyn. In his own words:
"After Hurricane Maria devastated our land, I wanted to make something to help rebuild the infrastructure and help the victims of the storm. Also, after doing research and trying to find a surf wax that was vegan, ocean and reef safe, I was sadly disappointed to learn that the majority of surf waxes are made with harsh chemicals and are harmful to our oceans and sea life. Thats when I had the idea to make and sell my special edition organic vegan surf wax. For every special edition Hurricane Maria surf wax sale, I will be donating a portion of the proceeds to different Hurricane Maria relief charities."
