The planet is facing ever increasing environmental pressures, not least when it comes down to our oceans. From sewage pollution to marine litter, coastal development to climate change, as a group of like-minded individuals we are all often faced with these issues first-hand when using our precious chosen beaches. SAS brings us all together as people who love, enjoy and use the sea, not to mention those who are perhaps the most inclined to do something to help protect our coastal areas, in fact any area, from environmental damage. But what is the big picture and how can we adapt our lifestyles to make a positive difference no matter how small?
Our Sustainable Guide to Surfing is a thought-provoking, challenging and sometimes bleak assessment of the challenges that face our environment and how we, as surfers, contribute to them. But it also outlines how well-placed the surfing community is to influence positive action to tackle these issues and influence the masses to adopt an increasingly sustainable way of living.
