Surfers Against Sewage’s 20th Anniversary Beach Clean Tour Hits the Isle of Wight!

This August, Surfers Against Sewage (SAS), in association with the Quiksilver Foundation & myGames (powered by v), will be hitting the road with the biggest beach clean tour in its history. Since 1994, the volume of marine litter on UK beaches has increased by 146%* and SAS is helping combat this tide line of trash through its beach cleans and ongoing campaigns.  ‘Motivocean’ is SAS’s most ambitious beach clean tour to date and will be calling in at over 20 major UK beaches and waterside locations across the nation, including 5 locations across the South coast:

Friday 27th August Boscombe Surf Reef, by Sorted Surf Shop, 1pm
Saturday 28th August Isle of Wight, Freshwater West, 1pm
Saturday 28th August Brighton, east of the pier nr Yellow Wave, 1pm
Sunday 29th August East Witterings, Bracklesham Bay, 1pm
Monday 30th August Broadstairs, Viking Bay, Kent, 1pm

Everyone is welcome at the events and thanks to the support of the national youth volunteering charity v, SAS can also offer volunteers between 16 - 25 years old the opportunity to access and experience exciting sports, including surfing, by participating in these beach cleans. The sea and coastal environment are a vital component of so many sporting activities from sailing to surfing, and SAS hopes to further build awareness about coastal conservation by linking beach sports to the protection of the environment.

Hugo Tagholm, Director of Surfers Against Sewage, commented, “We’re delighted to be holding our ‘Motivocean 20th Anniversary Beach Clean Tour’ at so many locations across the South coast, where there are so many surfing waves and communities. The tour will help us engage a record number of new environmental activists and volunteers to make a meaningful difference to the UK’s precious beaches and the wider marine environment. We look forward to welcoming everyone to local events; our members, supporters, families and youth volunteers.”

To sign up please email Chris@sas.org.uk with the location you’d like to join SAS at,
your name, age and contact details. If you are between 16 - 25 years old, you can also

So, please come along to an event near you, meet SAS team members and like-minded volunteers, and help protect a beach near you!
