There are all kinds of places in this vast, diverse world. And currently there are all kinds of changes taking place. You don’t have to believe in the end of the world theories or even all the current data concerned with Global Warming to at least acknowledge that our precious surf points face or have experienced dramatic changes in recent times.
I was privileged to look through some previously un-published photos from John Witzig’s collection just this week and there were images of local Australian breaks that just don’t reel like they used to. Not to mention the dramatically different landscapes surrounding these once almost deserted beaches (although if we are lucky enough we can stil find some untouched waves, the more reason to protect them).
I have blogged before regarding the importance for surfers to take responsibility for the future of our planet in order to maintain the balance and at the simplest level preserve the beauty of our beaches, marine life and delicate waves.
