Winter 2019/2020, The HOB Surf with Us.
Winter starts the previous year it end. dumb words you may think, but it is very difficult to remain simple minded in this World of insanity, so we get wet, for hours long, voluntarly disconecting from the earhtly world and human society to let our Soul Be, We Surf.
So in order to keep the stoke, a needed stop by the actual state of things is a must. take some time to go through all and search more, made up Your Mind that the calling of Nature is more Powerful than anything, in the Old Tongue:
– The spirit is within the smooth bones of the god. Here are the sacred signs of the assembly of Lono: The voice of thunder bursts forth; The rays of lightning flash; The earthquake shakes the land; The smoky cloud and the rainbow appear; Heavy rain and high wind blow; Whirlwinds sweep beneath the earth; Rocks fall on stream banks; Red mountain-streams rush to the sea. Here are the water spouts; The cluster clouds of heaven tremble; Springs in the cliffs gush forth. … Here is Lono the bone of glory; The bone placed in the clear sky – (Educate Yourself,…)
The HOB Surf with Us – WIN19/20
/The surfer walks through the sand, paddles into an ocean twinkling beneath the open sky and waits among the dolphins and sea birds for a wave shaped by the confluence of distant storms, local breezes, shifting tides and ocean bottoms…. But there’s a dirty secret to the idyllic nature experience//… all here
as Clear as Water is!
Not that a message on environmental Ethic is to be made, or the point of ‘Surfing Economy’ addressed, this Winter we wont broadcast cute photos and Silver colored tube shaped Waves, this Winter Surf with Us goes under. And we are not talking underground.
// It’s true, we tend to think of ourselves as closer to nature than most. We throw ourselves into the ocean and fly with its rolling energy in an act of elemental oneness that’s hard to match. Aside from the wave riding, every time we paddle out we enter a foreign, uncaring realm that leaves us in no doubt about our sheer insignificance. For many surfers, much of the magic lies in the interaction with wilderness. Playing in wilderness, admittedly; but that requires watching it keenly and becoming aware of its ebbs and flows, mood swings and states of health. “We have a much more integral tie with the environment than most sports,” says Tom Kay, founder of the eco-active surf clothing company Finisterre. “Compare surfing to, say, golf, which is played on a man-made course to man-made rules, and clearly surfing does engender a deeper relationship with nature. It’s a cliché, but it is largely true.” continue here,…//
Human Health impact from dying Ocean’s
To quantify the resulting problems cause by the dying of Earth ocean’s, aside from being a monumental work, is simply unnecessary. So we will move on straight to Human Health risks. Buckle-up, its Bio.
On Intestinal Pollutant here
in 2019, DEVEX published a paper titled: Defusing the Toxic Time Bomb of Invisible Ocean’s pollutants.
Et/There is no hiding. Plastics and chemical pollutants now contaminate the most remote and deepest parts of the ocean. Despite the global ocean covering 71 percent of the earth’s surface and holding 97 percent of the earth’s water, scientists have found that tiny shrimp inhabiting the vast, remote depths of the Mariana Trench are loaded with toxic polychlorinated biphenyl — or PCBs — and brominated flame retardants at levels comparable to the world’s contaminated industrialized regions.// read more here,…/
From Fiction to Fictitious!
/Yearly, up to 12.7 million tonnes of plastic enters our oceans. It escapes from landfill sites, floats down our drains, ends up in rivers and makes its way into our oceans. A lot of plastic waste is invisible to the naked eye, it collects in ocean gyres, where marine life feeds. It’s not only the single-use plastic, such as plastic bottles and straws you use but the microbeads in your cosmetics, the fibres in your clothing and in your teabags. As only 1% of this plastic floats, everything else sinks to the floor polluting the most remote places on earth./here//
With a growing production of 400 000 per year,
the manufacturing of surfboard is long from solving its pollution active production.
Anyway, just go Surfing, an while you re at it, have a thought of it.
