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.

Five Blind Veterans Complete the Ultimate Kayaking Trip Down The Grand Canyon

Warning: This video will hit you right in the feels, but it's absolutely worth the watch. Travis Fugate had never met a blind person before he lost his vision fighting overseas. He was sure that extreme sports were over for him. But as Travis would learn, he was capable of kayaking down 226 miles of frothing whitewater through the Grand Canyon.

Over a century ago, Annie Taylor strapped herself into a barrel and floated over the edge of Niagara Falls. Barrels have gone out of style since then, but people are still intentionally floating over the edge of large waterfalls, only now they're doing it in kayaks and calling it a sport.

The beaches of Puerto Escondido, Mexico, like many others, have been rendered off-limits by the global pandemic. However, when a big swell hit the region, local surfers couldn't resist the urge to catch a few waves. Taking advantage of the wee morning hours before police came on duty, the surfers managed to catch a few waves before the boys in blue showed up.
