On June 1, 2013, Heal the Bay premiered its eco-surf mobile app, SurfGod HtB - produced in partnership with Torrid Games - a unique, 1st-person game for iPhone/iPad where players surf a wave by tilting their mobile device and score points by grabbing trash out of the water as it flies by. SurfGod HtB is a fun, interactive way to teach people of all ages about the problem of pollution in the ocean. The main character is inspired by surf legend Nick Gabaldón and one of the boards features artwork from the film White Wash.
Pick your player, grab a board, and hit the beach. While you're riding a super realistic wave, something icky flies your way... it's a plastic bag, yuck! What should you do? Grab that trash and save the ocean! Pick up as much trash as you can to score points. Get shacked in the barrel or hit the lip for some major air to score even more! The longer you keep picking up pollution, the faster it comes, so you better grab a rail and carve those turns to keep up! Go head-to-head in Game Center and challenge all your friends to see who is the ultimate Surf God.
