Since Blue Ocean Life was founded on Cape Cod, we wanted to give some of our friends and local small businesses from "the Cape" some love and appreciation. Cape Clasp is a company with a heart filled with respect and admiration for Cape Cod and marine life. They showcase their love through their variety of bracelet products by paying homage to adorable sea creatures and the ocean while donating a portion of profits to ocean conversation related causes. If you are an ocean lover like us (or know anyone who is), consider taking advantage of Black Friday deals that Cape Clasp has to offer this season.
Cape Clasp is affiliated with Tikos, an eco-conscious bracelet line, dedicated to reducing the amount of plastic waste that is entering our beloved oceans. Tikos carries out this noble feat by reusing plastic garbage and turning it into beautifully crafted jewelry. As fellow beach lovers, Blue Ocean Life is proudly aligning with this social cause. Likewise, we encourage you to help support ocean clean up by purchasing a few items this Black Friday and pairing them with our signature styles!
Paddle boarding is an invigorating yet relaxing way to connect with nature, get some great exercise, and reduce stress. If you or a loved one have a passion for paddle surfing or are looking to dip your toes into the hobby, then purchasing a paddle board through a reputable paddle boarding company is the first step. Moai Boards is committed to this passion and provides a wide range of affordable paddle board equipment and accessories to fit your functional and stylistic needs.
Furthermore, Moai Boards has partnered with the charity organization, Waves 4 Change. With each purchase, proceeds will go to helping the children of Africa who are affected by violence and conflict by teaching them to surf to help with emotional distress (this is also known as Surf Therapy.)

Shop our Diamond Collection this Black Friday and help spread our message with your friends and family. Our collection features baseball tees, hoodies, t-shirts, tank tops, and beach towels.
