Here's an announcement from one of our Welsh Patagonia partners. Our independent dealer on the west coast of Wales, TYF Adventure, is a big little business in the UK’s smallest city, St David’s.
TYF is an outdoor retailer and adventure provider
(coasteering, climbing, surfing and much more) in a city with a population of
1600 that sees 500,000 visitors a year. Being based in a coastal national park, surrounded by cliffs, beaches
and islands has had a big impact on everything they do – salt-water wild places
are in their blood.
Through Patagonia, TYF have been introduced to the folks at 1% For The Planet and over the last three years have donated £40,000 to environmental charities.
Ross and Alice from TYF were travelling and surfing out in California this autumn and met up with Chipper Bro (Patagonia’s core surfer-worker-ambassador) who took them to see the car park. Solar power car ports are pretty neat as it goes, but the humble car park took on a new tone for them in the company of nine-time world surfing champion Kelly Slater, veteran champ Tom Curran and 500 others. This was also the first showing of Chris Malloy’s film ‘One Track Mind’.
