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.

While most of our dads were busy building tree houses or fixing the training wheels on our tiny bicycles, this rad Russian dad decided to think outside the box. Say hello to the leaf blower powered turbo snow sled, which sounds slightly dangerous.  RELATED: We Aspire to Bike Like this 8-Year-Old Turns out it’s fairly harmless, except, well, there’s no way to brake. Oops. We suppose that will be included in the next prototype.

A Great White Nibble Leaves Surfer with 50-Stitches and a Story

2018 was a sharky year and 2019 is shaping up to be no different. At around 10 a.m. on Tuesday morning, 19-year-old Nick Wapner was surfing Sandspit Beach along California’s central coast when he felt a strong pressure around his legs. He looked back as his board was being driven out of the water to see the mouth of a great white shark closing around his ankles. He later said the head of the estimated 15-foot long shark was around three to four feet with massive jaws and beady black eyes.
