A special board built by Sergi from Flama Surfboards for the " Save Posidonia Project " in Spain.

This Flama Cork Evolve alaia is built entirely with natural and recycled materials, and will be showcased and auctioned at the Save Posidonia Festival (Formentera, 12th-15th October), an event to protect the lungs of our battered Mediterranean Sea. Save Posidonia Project is a pioneering project in the western Mediterranean Sea, in the Island of Formentera (Balearic Islands), to promote sustainable tourism and launch a plan of action to raise funds which will go exclusively to the conservation Oceanic Posidonia marine plant.

Oceanic Posidonia is a marine plant, and not an alga, which has root, stem, leaves, fruits and flowers. It forms meadows between the surface and the 40 meters of depth in waters of great quality like those of Formentera. Posidonia represents one of the most important natural values in the Mediterranean, since it exerts an important function in sediments filtration thus giving a unique transparency, contributes to maintain the quality and oxygenation of the submarine ecosystem where more than 400 species of marine plants and 1,000 species of marine animals are fed and breed; many of them used in the Balearic gastronomy and, finally, the Posidonia berms on the sand avoid beaches erosion.
