I'm a surfer so I believe... @surfrider
I’m a surfer so I believe… April 04 2012 | Waves , Activism , Surfing , I'm a surfer so I believe our coastslines should be accessible. If we can't get to the beaches, we can't paddle out from them. Beaches are our open spaces that don't belong to anyone. They belong to all of us. I believe the water should be clean so I shouldn't worry about getting an ear infection when I paddle out. High school surf teams shouldn't have to get Hepatitis shots to be on their surf teams. I believe being a surfer is more than just someone who rides waves; a surfer is also someone who protects waves. We've seen some of the best waves in the world lost essentially due to apathy or lack of organization. We have ourselves to blame for those lost waves... no one else. If we don't organize and engage to fight for what we love future generations will rightly blame us for the losses. I'm a surfer ...
