Invest 30 seconds, sign this and help protect waves

May 14 2013 | Waves, Surfing,

I'll make the ask up front, sign this petition to help us establish legal protection of waves in the UK. It will take you 30 seconds to be part of this effort.

 

The Surfrider Foundation, as part of the global coalition of wave protecting organizations, is joining our friends Surfers Against Sewage in England to call for 100,000 signatures to protect the waves we love. 

Organizations from all over the globe are coming together on what we're calling "Global Wave Wednesday", May 15th, to pool our efforts and ask people to connect to this push.

Waves are under threat from many different forces including sewage, litter, beach access, development. 

The aim of the Protect Our Waves petition is to generate at least 100,000 signatures to highlight the value of surfing waves and locations to government and encourage debate of legislation in order to recognize the importance of waves as a cultural, social, economic and environmental asset to coastal communities.

We, all of us, believe that waves and surf spots deserve to be seen as part of our heritage and should be afforded greater recognition and protection through debate and legislation.

By signing the Protect Our Waves petition: "I am calling on the government to debate the economic and intrinsic value of surfing waves and beaches, and produce specific legislation to protect these unique, finite assets for this and future generations."

Thanks so much and we'll see you in the water.
