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.

    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.

PSA: This Is Why To Stay The HELL Away From Cornices…

About this time of year we should all start reminding ourselves how to travel in the backcountry safely. You may have already been out there or may be anticipating that first run out the gates or setting that first skin track of the season. Whatever the case, we have to temper that excitement a bit with the realization that we probably forgot a bunch of potentially life-saving factoids from the winter previous. As this POV video from Jakob Homolka demonstrates at 1:15, one of those little

Mick Fanning Talks About How Bipolar Disorder Brought Out Two Sides of Andy Irons

That Andy Irons was a ferocious competitor isn't exactly breaking news. One of the reasons Andy became surfing's cult of personality at the turn of century was because of his raw emotionality–fiery, unabashed, at times bordering on unhinged.
