Oil Spill in Santa Barbara

A ruptured pipeline leaked 21,000 gallons of crude oil into the Pacific

As surfers, the last major oil spill to affect our beaches and breaks was 2010's Deepwater Horizon oil spill, which gushed oil into the Gulf of Mexico for 87 days. For scale, the estimated amount of oil leaked in 2010 was 210 millions gallons, so around 10,000 times more than Tuesday's spill in Santa Barbara. Thankfully, this accident was nowhere near as disastrous. That said, any oil into our oceans is bad news.

Perspectives on P.O.V. with Mikala Jones

How the D.I.Y. documenting of surf travel has changed the game

"My main goal with the GoPro is to find a wave where there’s no one else in the lineup and it’s firing. Which is why it’s a great camera for traveling. People want to see empty waves in the footage anyways, which is good, because that’s pretty much what I live for anyways." —Mikala Jones
