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.

Watch John John Florence Launch Backflip with Ease at Baldface

It seems two-time WSL Championship Tour winner John John Florence kills it on any board he stands on. After a trip to Baldface Lodge in British Columbia, John John Florence posted an Instagram of him doing a backflip making it look just as effortless as his performances in the water. This guy is ridiculous; he must be a professional athlete or something…

Safety Week: Beacon Fundamentals

The most important aspect of beacon fundamentals is simple: practice. Get to know your own beacon and its functions and know how to switch to search quickly.

Look Back At The Weirdest And Wildest Waves Of 2017

Surfing saw a whole lot of innovation, creativity and progression in 2017. "The Dock" blew people's minds as a 100-foot, half-tonne plastic raft was anchored in the middle of a surf break in Bali for surfers to jump off, throw their boards under their feet and land right into the wave.  We even saw some surf shuvits, with surfers taking a page out of skateboarding's book. Take a look at all the new trends, tricks, and goofiness that went down in 2017.
