Surfline’s The Mechanics of Teahupo’o

I just love the Surfline features describing what makes our favorite surf breaks tick. It’s pretty interesting information, especially when you consider the impending changes due from climate change (e.g. rising sea levels and super-storms).

Surfline just published a great article describing the geology, meteorology, and topography, of just why Teahupo’o is the heaviest break int he world. I’ve never gotten to surf it but the article makes me want to even more (at least when it’s head high and below).

Not related to sustainability in any sense, but check out Greg 10-point ride at J-Bay from Round 3. A dry hair barrel like that is pretty spectacular

The Crisis in the Oceans

I’m a big fan of the research done by the International Panel on the State of the Oceans. They’re a group whose dry, academic work describes a doomsday message that’s a whole lot scarier than you might expect from their nerdy appearance.

Their predictions in a recent report indicate that not only do we face the imminent loss of coral reefs within the next 20-40 years (say good-bye to all those perfect tropical coral reef passes!), it is quite likely that we will see one of the ocean’s six largest mass extinctions in the Earth’s history in the next century.

The causes? Climate change, ocean acidification, over-fishing, pollution, extraction (e.g. oil drilling), and invasive species. Read the short report summarizing their findings by clicking here.
