Surfers have been on the front lines on the battle against plastic marine debris. Here's a video about a surfer and shaper who's trying to make boards from recycled plastic. I noticed the story today on Discovery Communications' Treehugger.com blog. It's the story of Kevin Cunningham in Providence, R.I., who created the Spirare Sustainable Surf Craft project -- bringing together a desire to do something about marine debris with his passion for making surfboards from sustainable materials. He explains in the video that his materials include post-consumer polystyrene. Here's a link to Cunningham's project -- he says it will move forward if he can raise $3,200 by April 16.
Surfboards made from ocean trash?
