Kelly Slater puts bord up for Auction SurfSister

Kelly Slater is joining the effort to help clean up Bali by donating a surf board and offering to give his time and money to turn the tide of the seemingly careless disregard for the environment that has permeated the holiday island.

Slater has been in spending the last few days in Bali surfing and visiting friends in between stops on the ASP World Tour, and was understandably aghast at seeing the large amounts of trash in the water and on the beaches of the previously pristine Bali.

On April 23rd Slater sent out a series of “tweets” from his Twitter account describing his concern for Bali’s pollution problems that not only went out to his almost 200,000 followers it was also “re-tweeted” and has by now reached hundreds of thousands more in the surf industry and the international media, notably in Australia, Bali’s largest tourist market.

Captain Charles Moore: "...the ocean is downhill from everywhere..."

As Captain Moore said on Letterman, we are a crisis driven society and this is not seen as a crisis because this garbage is far away AND we have a political party which takes pride in labeling environmentalists as "whacko" for the sake of corporate greed. Education of the general public IS key here. I wish I was more optimistic that this society will ever change. We all must do our part not only in refusing to use unnecessary plastic but to educate others, as well. Don't be silenced by bid B. ‪(kvblakely‬ 2 years ago)

Typical, something this important and only one comment. When you have yet another electronic gadget garnering worldwide interest and 1000's of comments. I am reminded once again of what little hope we truly have as a race to save what we're so efficient at destroying. All the best to Charles Moore and his team, you're all shining lights in this darkness.‪ (fusion01wp‬ 2 years ago)

Great work, Captain Moore! The world needs more environmentalists such as you! For the sake of our planet, please continue your important work. (‪progressivepathway‬ 2 years ago)
