Junk in Public Trailer - H2O Trash Patrol

Editor's Note: Check out this inspiring couple removing trash from San Diego's waterways - by hand - by using a squad of paddleboards to pore over the rivers, streams, and marshes to pick out everything from old tires to dirty hypodermic needles. Commitment. We love it!

Paddle along as H2O Trash Patrol travels deep into the hidden corners and otherwise unreachable waterways of San Diego County. In Junk in Public, a husband and wife team of passionate surfers, Lorenzo and Patti Diaz, feeling a personal call to duty, lead environmental vigilantes far beyond the sunny beaches where most clean ups begin and end. 

Watch how, in 2015 alone, they prevented more than 5,900 pounds of junk from reaching the ocean. People will never look at their local waterways the sam, after seeing what they find. Through sunny days on standup paddleboards, to the deepest, darkest waterways in Southern California, Junk in Public will leave viewers inspired to do their part in stopping junk long before it hits the beach.

Junk in Public is available as a short for film festivals, educators and fundraisers starting spring 2016.

What’s scary is that that’s not even as dirty as the water in Rio that olympic athletes are expected to compete in.

    Totally! It’s pretty gnarly everywhere when you really stop to look at it. We’ve all become accustom to ignoring it.

      Yeah it’s so nasty. I wish there were people like these guys in every city.

What Have David Lesh and Virtika Done Now?

Ski industry playboy David Lesh and his outerwear brand, Virtika, have made a name for themselves in recent years as one to play by their own rules through somewhat unorthodox marketing tactics. Lesh is back at it, with a new video spelling out the “history” of his brand. It's a little weird.

Six Bros Supsquatch a Thirty Foot Wave at Nazaré

Two days ago, six guys got towed into an absolute bomb on a supsquatch at Nazaré. Although Jamie O'Brien and company usually take the cake with antics in scary conditions, this crew might have the Hawaii boys beat. Anyway, this looks scary as hell and a guaranteed beatdown.

Come flying down some whitewater on the Toxaway River, with some nice proper flow! The Toxaway is a true whitewater gem to Western North Carolina and particularly the escarpment. It's going to be hard to forget this rad day out on some massive whitewater!
