Threat categories you can tag

COASTAL DEVELOPMENT

Harbors, jetties, seawalls, coastal armoring, breakwaters and beach-front construction can destroy or alter both waves and coastal ecosystems.

PLASTIC TRASH AND MARINE DEBRIS

Plastic trash and marine debris impact the coastal environment, economy, and the health and safety of surfers and marine life.

SEA LEVEL RISE & EROSION

While coastal erosion is perfectly natural, development along the coast has made it worse, and climate change induced sea-level rise has made it much worse.

WATER QUALITY

Industrial waste, fertilizers, sewage, toxic runoff, and pesticides–both point and non-point sources of water pollution–have negative effects on the health of surfers and nearshore marine life around the world.​

CORAL REEF IMPACT

As corals are destroyed through harmful run-off, destructive fishing practices, and climate change, both the critical ecosystems and the structures that create the waves that we love are lost.

ACCESS

Development and privatization of the coast cuts off local access and enjoyment to some of the most beautiful places in the world. Everyone should be able to enjoy their coastlines and waves.
