Christmas carols, new coastal overdevelopment projects, littering and spills threatening waves and coastal ecosystems around the world.
The past few days we could sadly find some good examples can next to our own headquarters in Spain. Construction projects such as the one featured here in El Sardinero beach, Santander, or the recently projected breakwater wall on La Concha beach next to the Suances Surf Reserve in Cantabria, do not include the surfing factor in their coastal planning. Marine pollution, and brine spills projects such as the one planned in La Santa and El Quemao breakers in Lanzarote, Canary Islands, are also real threats that we must face.
Surf & Nature Alliance’s team wish you all the best for 2023.
