K.Baldry ,

Quality content - so needed

I am constantly frustrated by just how many surfers are out there that have no interest in taking an active role to protect and preserve the ocean - the very thing they need in order to do what they love.
That is why it is so important that organisations like WSL have these conversations - and bring it to the mainstream surf culture...highlighting the need to be better and do better.
Fantastic group WSL pure
Fantastic podcast.
