For WSL World Champion Italo Ferreira, the ocean is what inspires him. Being raised beside the sea has shaped his entire world, giving him the chance to pursue his passion and fall in love with the sport that changed his life.

The We Are One Ocean campaign is urging world leaders to protect 30% of our one ocean by 2030. In support of 30x30, the World Surf League (WSL) has produced six inspiring short films that give the ocean a voice through some of the people who cherish it most—like Italo Ferreira.

A future without the ocean? It would be terrible. I think the ocean is God’s special gift to the people. I sign because the ocean inspires me. Will you join me?
