Surfrider Foundations Gromfest

So good to see the region's Groms competing against each other at the Surfrider Foundations Gromfest today!

What was more encouraging for me was seeing how enthusiastically these kids committed to the beach clean event as well as some of the conversations I had with them about plastic pollution. They are on to it and it was a bit of a wake up call to be honest.

We have some of the most pristine beaches in the world but if you take the time to have a closer look you realize how much things are changing ..........

MICRO PLASTICS are everywhere!!! For someone who is at the beach all the time even I was shocked with how much plastic there really is on our beaches, (let alone in the guts of our birds and gills of our fish)
Its real and its happening!! Don't be a bystander- its time to act, we have a choice - SAY NO TO PLASTIC.

We have a responsibility and owe it to our future generations.
Thank you @surfrider_southcoast and @surfing_Illawarra_official for such a great day.

THANKS Peter Armstrong
