As a part of Surfs Up hacks we decided to make something that contributes to our environment. We wanted to make a hack that inspires people to think about our oceans, beaches and motivates them to volunteer for clean-ups.

What it does

Surf-Tribe is a web application that registers you for clean up drives organised for beaches near you. Through our app, you can find a community of people who are willing to contribute their share in conserving nature. Join with hundreds of such people and play your part.

How we built it

The front end of our application is done using HTML, CSS. The backend is done using Node, Express, MongoDB.

Challenges we ran into

Integrating Google Maps API was difficult in our application. We replaced that with a simple text box containing address of nearest beach.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud of being able to put a fully functional website at the end of the hackathon. We are proud of our teamwork and ability to adjust in our roles according to needs.

What we learned

We learnt the integration of a database in a project using node and express. We became better at the designing process of a website.

What's next for Surf-Tribe

  1. A Google maps API integration for easy navigation to the nearest beach
  2. Voice assistant in the website
  3. Better UI/UX design
