  • There is now overwhelming evidence that we humans are altering the planet in such a way that, if we carry on at the present rate, it will soon cease to support us In other words, our present way of living is not sustainable The major problems, which all feed off each other, include a population spiralling out of control, resources being depleted millions of times fasterThere is now overwhelming evidence that we humans are altering the planet in such a way that, if we carry on at the present rate, it will soon cease to support us In other words, our present way of living is not sustainable The major problems, which all feed off each other, include a population spiralling out of control, resources being depleted millions of times faster than they are naturally replaced and by products of our energy consumption changing the chemical composition of the atmosphere, which, in turn, is changing the climate Most people refuse to believe these problems are real They are afraid to reduce their consumer based lifestyles because they think that the they consume the happier they will be Thankfully, some people still get pleasure from natural activities things that money can t buy Traditionally, surfers have always been among these people With a minimum of equipment we use a very small amount of the ocean s energy to make us happy We know that, after being out in the ocean at dawn with perfect waves and a light offshore wind, the feeling of owning a 42 inch television or a expensive car than your next door neighbour pales into insignificance However, surfing nowadays involves a lot of travelling and a lot of consuming of goods and energy before the waves themselves are actually ridden Compared with a few decades ago, surfers are now consuming just as many, if not natural resources as other members of society The extra consumption is not seen as an end in itself, but simply a means of getting to the waves quicker to get surfing done on better equipment So, before we start to persuade other members of society to become sustainable, we need to do the same ourselves Aimed principally at surfers, the book is divided into three main sections our excessive use of energy, our obsession with getting from one place to another as fast as possible, and our over consumption of material goods Each section begins by explaining what we are doing wrong, and then goes on to suggest how we can put things right for ourselves and, lastly, how we can persuade others to do the same.
