Last May, we highlighted the maternal qualities of some wonderful creatures swimming in our oceans. On Father’s Day this month, we’ll going to highlight paternal displays of nurture among these bros. There are three types of paternal roles that have been observed among male fishes.
You can’t be a life-long surfer without becoming a passionate environmentalist. Beyond the stoke and the adrenaline rush, surfing brings you in contact with a lot of urgent issues in the ocean that needs to be addressed. Because oceans are far too important to our race and our planet’s survival to be ignored.
Here in California, red tides occur frequently along the coast. They occur frequently around Santa Barbara and San Diego because the waters there are warmer. In fact, the La Jolla coast along San Diego is already a destination area for tourists looking to view the ocean glow at night. What exactly causes red tides?
Did you know that the military has now gone beyond drafting four-legged animals? Yup, they’re actually training dolphins and seals now to help in the defense and protection of our navy ships. Awesome, right? That’s why, for a special Memorial Day feature, we’re going to highlight these bros of ours and how they’re doing their part in protecting our country.
A surfing leash is essentially a piece of rope that’s attached to the tail of the surfboard and has a Velcro wrap on the other end which is fastened to the surfer’s ankle. The first leash was actually made of surgical tubing which wasn’t safe for surfers. Surfing leashes are important in many ways.
It’s inspiring and heartwarming to find creatures that are undaunted by the challenges and continue to be fiercely protective of their younglings. So to commemorate Mother’s Day this May, we are highlighting the most fiercely maternal and loving of these creatures that we share our oceans with. Here are the ocean’s most nurturing moms.
There’s also a lot of myths and misconceptions regarding the treatment of this medical problem. Having had it, I’m going to share with you some real facts that I learned while being treated for this condition. Here’s your ultimate guide to what a surfer’s ear is.
We’re featuring our other bros which we share the oceans with. Species extinction does not only occur on land but also on water. And these creatures have suffered the most because of our race’s recklessness. Here are the top ten endangered marine creatures in our oceans today.
Originally used to protect the skin from the chafing caused by the wax we put on our surfer boards, it’s now being used by anyone needing protection from the sun, sand or the chafing from neoprene wetsuits. But now, it seems that there’s a new reason why using it may not be beneficial for the marine environment. Here’s why rash guards can be dangerous for the ocean.
If someone told me decades ago, back when I first started out surfing, that beaches could become endangered sites, I would have scoffed at the idea. I mean, it’s a nice idea for a dystopian surfer novel, sure, but the probability of it coming to reality would be nil. Or so I thought, then.
I’d say it’s timely particularly when the world’s marine wildlife and the ocean are at the forefront of the negative impact of climate change.It’s also an opportunity, as the global organization noted in its website, to highlight “critical issues and values of marine wildlife.”
