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.

After his success on Utah’s water ramps, Maine’s most prolific skier headed up north to try his luck at Whistler. Despite his best efforts to “teach ‘em a thing or two about how to lay in a wicked nice cahve tuhn,” Donny P struggles to gain the respect of the locals.

Nazaré Welcomes Russell Bierke

Nazaré Welcomes Russell Bierke

The locals consider it a sign of good luck to take a massive wipeout when surfing Nazaré for the first time. If the legend is true, then renowned slab hunter Russell Bierke might be the luckiest guy in Portugal. After letting go of his towline and dropping into an estimated 60-footer, the young Aussie got overtaken by the pursuing wave and disappeared for 14 agonizing seconds. We can only imagine the beating he took, but if anyone has experience in that type of situation, it’s Russell.

For centuries the ancient town of Nazaré was thought of only as a small fishing village along the Portuguese coast, if thought of at all. That all changed in 2011 when big wave legend and surf pioneer Garrett McNamara recorded himself with a GoPro riding down the face of a 78-foot behemoth within spitting distance of the town’s historic lighthouse. Since then, the once quiet town has been flooded by surfers and the town’s economy has been revitalized. Related: Rent or Download Andy Irons:
