Liz Clark

Calling all co-sailing, surf, adventure enthusiasts. I have been following Captain Liz Clark’s voyage on Swell since she set sail back around ten years ago. At that time she was not a Patagonia Ambassador nor a Nat Geo Adventurer but boy has she earned both those titles. We are so excited to have her stop in Santa Monica. Join us if you can. For her 10 ways to make a better world, click the link above. Hope to see you there!PAT_S16_WsActive_LizClark_SantaMonica

Trouble in Paradise: Tackling the Trash Epidemic

Alison Teal takes us back to the Maldives where she shot the Discovery Channel’s Naked and Afraid series to highlight their plastic trash epidemic. I am so glad she is drawing attention to such a real problem. I had the same reaction when I traveled to Bali in 2008; seeing beaches and surf breaks littered with plastic bottles and other debris. Some of the most beautiful places on earth are being overtaken by trash.

The Surfrider Foundation Turns 30

 

Thirty years ago, a group of surfers from Malibu, California, took action to fight the environmental health risks associated with escalating coastal development.  Since its inception in 1984, the Surfrider Foundation has evolved into one of the largest nonprofit grassroots organizations dedicated to  protecting and enjoying the world’s oceans, waves, and beaches.

To celebrate, they have launched the organization’s first-ever timeline and an opportunity for the public to submit a design for their 2015 membership tee.

Protecting Our Water and Waves

IMG_8812

Earth Day should be every day (it is for us!), but we’re always down with taking a day to celebrate our amazing planet. We’re especially grateful for the sea and all that it gives us—and thankful for organizations that work tirelessly to protect our oceans, including Surfrider, Heal the Bay, and Oceana.
