Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) have been on a steady rise, disrupting blockchains and cryptocurrency with their prominence and demand. NFTs are one-of-a-kind digital assets holders can buy, own, and trade on various networks. The higher the rarity of NFTs, the bigger their value. Entering the NFT market is the SurfPunks NFT collection, a project containing hand-drawn tokens and developed with unique utilities. With only 500 available for circulation, SurfPunks will be some of the rarest tokens in the scene upon release.
SurfPunks are 500 unique collectible characters located on the Ethereum blockchain. Surfers are known for being courageous and free-spirited, and the SurfPunks NFT collection aims to bring the same spirit into the NFT landscape.
SurfPunks are one-of-one unique NFTs. Each token will bring its holder exclusive access to special events, discords, and giveaways on a tiered system. Each of the NFTs represents the spirit of a radical surfer with its own distinct personality and story to tell.
The first exclusive event for SurfPunks holders will be held in Waco, Texas, at the BSR WavePool and Resort. It will be on March 21st and will be a day full of surfing on the man-made wave pool, live music by a special guest, food, and NFT chat. Holders will also have a chance to meet some of their favorite surfers and icons.
“It’s been happening all over, from Zuck on an E-Foil to Elon making Tesla surfboards. Everyone wants to be a surfer. Who doesn’t want a nice tan, ocean healing, and being part of an exclusive tribe? We’ve been surfing this crypto wave before most of you heard about Bitcoin from Instagram or saw some YouTuber make millions off some wild Altcoin,” explained the founders on the project’s website. “With NFTs going absolutely bananas, we wanted to give the opportunity to those who can’t afford a $100,000 NFT. SurfPunks is a project for the people and the ocean.”
SurfPunks showcases the founders’ creativity and highlights some of the most iconic figures in the surf community. Surfers have formed a tight-knit group over the years, with people coming from anywhere across the world. In the same way, SurfPunks aims to establish a close community of like-minded individuals who share the same passion for the ocean and its glorious waves.
In addition, SurfPunks will be donating a portion of all its proceeds to the Mauli Ola Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing hope and confidence to individuals living with genetic diseases. The foundation harnesses the healing powers of the ocean by engaging its beneficiaries in ocean-based activities as natural therapies. SurfPunks and Mauli Ola Foundation believe that the ocean has the ability to heal both physically and emotionally.
SurfPunks is a project by the Crypto Surf League (CSL). Holders will automatically become part of the CSL and have access to the unique educational platform offering courses and information about cryptocurrency. The NFTs will also give owners access to the league’s Discord server. CSL aims to help everyone understand the crypto landscape better, from setting up crypto wallets, trading digital assets to knowing which projects are worth investing in. CSL will also give members first-hand access to future projects, exclusive events and take part in the enrichment of surfing communities worldwide.
“We have been blessed by surfing and what the ocean offers, so this is our way of merging two worlds to create synergy and growth. We’re excited to bring SurfPunks to the crypto and surf communities,” shared the founders.
There’s also a second collection of SurfPunks in the works. This collection will prepare SurfPunks to live in the metaverse and will provide much more utility in the digital space. They are also gearing up for big partnerships.
