“Alison do you have your pink surfboard” Tina Segura, head of Los Angeles Surfrider asked me on my lay over in California!
“Of course!” I replied! “Wanna head for a surf!?”
“Actually,” Tina continued, “I’m wondering if you wanna go with me to the first flush and we can spread some awareness on plastic pollution.”
“Say no more!” I replied already grabbing my board….”I’ll take one for the team:)”
With the support of Surfrider and Michael Courtney with Riders On the Storm, I paddled through the unbelievably hazardous and disgusting trash caused by “first flush” (rain) in LA that flushes in Ballona Creek before flowing out to sea.
