Let’s all begin to think how we too can Live a Deep Blue Life. Watch the the short interview with Zane to learn more.  Please help inspire others by sharing it!


Live a Deep Blue Life and be a protector of our oceans

Zane Schweitzer and Sean Poynter are both inspired athletes and watermen.  They are each deeply committed – through their relationship to the water and Starboard Sup – to preserving our natural environment, specifically through eliminating plastic as much as they can in their daily lives to protect our marine environment.

In this short video, Zane speaks of his background in the Hawaiian culture and how the concept of ‘Pono’ drives him to preserve the health of our oceans.  Deeply inspiring as always, Zane’s dedication to living what Starboard has coined #theDeepBlueLife brings us all to greater awareness of the steps we can take to live more consciously.

“Being aware and then taking initiative for what inspires YOU to want to continue to take that next step.  That’s the start of a Deep Blue Life.” -Zane Schweitzer
