It was too good not to share.
All too often we go to the beach and take.
We take the time to take a few waves and hopefully leave with a blissful smile on our faces. But what about what we're leaving behind as we walk back to our rad exhaust-spewing machines?
Last week as I was walking up to the public shower after an amazing session and I stepped over a pile of plastic and it hit me.
It doesn't have to be a scheduled, organized beach cleanup with coffee, muffins and garbage bags for me to pick up trash.
Then I had an idea.
- After a session I'm going to grab one piece of trash for each waves I take.
- If I take more waves than I can count (which happens a lot) I grab as much as I can carry.
I've been doing this for a few weeks now and although I am not getting all the trash I see. It does make a difference.
Just imaging what'll happen when the 200 people also surfing every spot do it too.
It's a win win.
And the more waves you take, the cleaner our beaches get.
