Water pollution. How big a problem is it?
Over the past 5 years i've had to close down two of my kiteboarding schools due to water pollution. I would like to open up a discussion on how water pollution has effected people and if you feel it is a serious problem or not. In my experience spending over 3 hours a day in the ocean, water pollution is a major issue that so few people in the sports industry are addressing. That being said surfers against pollution is a wonderful organisation and they are doing a great job but its a small percentage of people. I wrote this article below and after publishing it got a fair amount of grief from people living in the affected areas saying I was being unfair and harsh. What do you think?
