Surfers Against Sewage’s 20th Anniversary Beach Clean Tour Hits Longsands!

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 4 locations across the East coast:

Saturday 21st August Tynemouth, Longsands, next to Tynemouth Surf School, 1pm
Saturday 21st August Cromer, Norfolk, by the pier, 1pm
Friday 27th August Scarborough, South Bay, 1pm
Saturday 28th August Saltburn, by the pier, 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 these locations across the east coast, where so many of the UK’s top surfing waves are located. 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!
