Project Save Our Surf and the Eco-Warrior Project are joining forces to launch "Gulf Alert 2010." The aim of the initiative is to raise awareness of ways the surfing public can help shift the direction from pollution toward renewal. Gulf Alert 2010 will accomplish these goals with direct action on the ground, in the water and over the skies of the Gulf area.
On Saturday, we – professional surfer and model Mary Osborne, champion stand-up paddler Chuck Patterson, actor Richard Burgi and I – will leave for Gulfport, Miss. We will stand-up paddle through areas of the spill in protest of the devastation that is plaguing that region of coastline as well as document a fly-over and participate in local wildlife rescue efforts.
Details of the paddle mission will be made public afterward due to conflicts among local agencies and restricted areas of coastline.
