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.

Forget The Olympics, Check Out Norwegian Death Diving

Norwegians have a funny sense of humor. The nation is home some huge mountains, great skiers, and is arguably where death metal started in the early 1990s. Keeping that macabre mood going, today we present you with the 2018 Norwegian Death Diving World Championships. They call it “dødsing,” we call it absolutely nuts. I mean, who else would want to throw themselves off a 10m diving platform and land in the loudest, most painful and least graceful way possible? Upon a little research, this is

Unless you’ve been living under a rock on the West Coast, you’ve seen that the Eastern Seaboard has been getting pummeled by Hurricane Florence (now Tropical Depression Florence). The record-breaking rain and winds led to a death toll of at least 18, and has left much of the area without power and under water. Of course, some locals felt the need to brave the elements in their own way, like this kite surfer in Nags Head, North Carolina.

This is exactly what you don’t want to happen halfway up a climbing route: the entire pillar you just ascended collapsing at your feet. We can’t find more details on the climber or route just yet, other than the climber was likely Spaniard Antonio Saldaña Santaella, but wherever it was, it’s scary.  Almost as good as this gem from the ice climbing world:
