About the speaker
Chris has been working with Hugo and the Surfers Against Sewage team for four years during which time they have developed several very successful campaigns. This year’s campaign saw acclaimed tattoo artist Nick the Taylor to develop a set of Save Our Seas campaign tattoos to raise awareness of marine litter.
He is from Aberystwyth in West Wales and is a keen surfer. Living and working in London with a young family, Chris will take whatever waves he can get, believing simply that no surf is too small or too blown out.
