The Scariest Thing About Sharks is How Fast They’re Disappearing.
Sharks are the lifeblood of our oceans, and they’re disappearing. If the oceans lose their apex predator, the entire ecosystem could collapse. Costa is proud to be a long-term supporter of OCEARCH, an at-sea lab led by explorers and researchers who generate critical data and put science on the side of sharks.
OCEARCH is a research vessel and at-sea laboratory that generates critical data and puts science on the side of sharks to help protect our oceans. Costa is proud to partner with OCEARCH in a joint mission to protect what’s out there. Watch the video to find out more!

My name is Toni. I have lived in South Florida for most of my life and remember always looking forward to Island Water Sport’s Midnight Madness. IWS has always been family. Growing up with a dad who loved to surf, I naturally loved the water. I have been blessed to work in the skateboarding industry while freelancing for magazines like Eastern Surf Magazine, The Paper, Juxtapose, Reggae Times, and Big Brother. Although I love to dabble in writing, marketing, and geeking out on the internet, my life’s passion is investing in the lives of skateboarders and building skateparks around the world with my family.
