Surfers Without Borders (SWoBs) has been diving deep into serious issues of cleaning our waters (the kind we drink and the kind we play in) – both of which all of life depends on for survival.
In our recent blog post, “From the Quench Summit to Alaska and more” you can find how SWoBs has been taking action!
