WSL PURE Ambassador Greg Long Talks Conservation

WSL PURE Ambassador Greg Long called in from Keramas to join environmental advocates and professional athletes Elena Hight from Protect Our Winters and Mark Towill from 11th Hour Racing for a conversation on Protecting our Playground. Each athlete shared their experiences and revealed how humans are impacting, waves, mountains, and even Point Nemo, the farthest point from land.

Long grew up in Southern California and started traveling to pristine surfing meccas at the age of eighteen. After traveling around the world he realized that many of the distant shores he visited weren't as pristine as he thought they would be.

Long uses his athlete influence to educate and spread awareness about climate change and plastic pollution. To learn why each athlete chose to defend their playground and how they each engage their fans to ensure the next generation has a beautiful place for competition, listen to the Webinar Replay.
