BOARDSOCK GIVEAWAY

by Derek Dodds July 03, 2016

Yea, we are going to talk about stuff that will make you uncomfortable here so maybe you should stop reading and go back to ruining the planet, or you can stay and be part of the change inside yourself and live more intelligently and harmoniously.

We live lives of disconnect, our food comes to us packaged, our news comes to us filtered, our lives in many ways are regurgitated droplets of others people's actions and words, no pun intended.

When we hit that handle and our organic offerings depart our view they do not disappear, if you live near the ocean that somewhere place is most likely not far from your local surf spot.

Any item that has not passed through you naturally should not be flushed down the toilet, other than toilet paper.

People flush objects such as cotton swabs, tampons, condoms and razors without thinking about the consequences, sewage related debris or SRD have a huge impact on the water environment—throw that stuff in the trash, please.

What happens is that in the filtration process the SRDs can clog up the system, break sewer lines and cause back-flow issues.

When a problem arises water departments frequently send untreated sewage into the ocean to remove a block rather than sending it back towards residential communities.

Surfers and marine animals are adversely affected.

Okay, you got it?

Don't flush it unless it goes through you first.

For surfers, most especially, it’s around this time of the year that we’re free to take a surfing trip. We’ve been known to disappear at the drop of a hat to go to distant places around the world to catch the perfect swell. But for those of us who are holding a job for most of the year, December is the only ideal month to go out and chase that wave.
What El Niño Means for Surfers and Our Planet
What El Niño Means for Surfers and Our Planet

Remember those early days when El Niño was becoming a buzzword and we thought that it wasn’t as dire as scientists thought it would be? As it turned out, the El Nino is a double -edged sword for surfers. It creates more big storms, resulting to bigger swells, but it can also bring about the wrong winds which can be dangerous for surfing.
