Save the Waves, a non-profit organization dedicated to preservation of coastlines and marine life, monitors surf spots world wide and campaigns to save endangered waves.  Their list of endangered waves encourages ocean enthusiasts to participate in their fight to rescue waves from destruction.

Unfortunately some of the world’s greatest breaks are ranked on the list including Cobquera Chile, Mundaka Spain, Playa Teta Panama and Gijon Spain.  Once lost a break can never be recreated, redeemed, or restored to its former glory.  It is vital we all take action and make the efforts to end the destruction of these waves now, before they are lost forever.  To read more about how to save the four breaks above, click here.  To buy Save the Wave’s documentaries on ocean and surf preservation, click here…you might just find the perfect holiday gift for your family’s ocean enthusiast.
