Reflections on International Surfing Day

On International Surfing Day, let's take a moment to be thankful that we have (mostly) clean ocean waves to surf, and not oily waters fouled by greed-driven corporate malfeasance abetted by the gross negligence of our government.


  1. OMG, I thought that was a wave cast in resin. You are so right, I feel so sorry for the people this is affecting.

  2. Ha, same here! A terrific pic, so beautiful but so tragic all at the same time!

  3. I hope Oz has a saner plan for dealing with the risks of offshore drilling. My Canadian surfing buddy tells me that north of the border they require relief wells to be drilled at the same time as the main one, rather than after the fact - so this wouldn't have happened in Canada.

  4. Hi,

    I have been following your blog and enjoy reading your posts!

    Do you accept guests posts on your blog? I have written two different posts that might be of interest to your readers. One talks about how the oil spill is affecting our favorite surf spots; the other discusses eco friendly surf clothing and how they help our environment.

    If you choose to use one of my posts, your search engine rankings will benefit because the post that I will send will be unique to your site, while giving your audience new information in the surfing world.

    Let me know if this is of interest to you and I will forward the posts for your use. You can reach me at jared at envirosurfer dot com.


  5. Thanks, Jared, but no, this is strictly my own personal blog. If you have your own, I'd like to read what you've written.

  6. lets help , in protecting our environment. specially our ocean. we have to be more vigilant and participate in environmental activism.

    Thus Goverment should be more strict on corporations environmental compliance. & more accountabilities should be given on them.
