SAS want to say a big THANK YOU for signing the Protect Our Waves petition.
On October 22nd, double Brit Award winner Ben Howard supported the call of more than 55,000 surfers to better protect UK waves, oceans and beaches as he delivered Surfers Against Sewage’s Protect Our Waves petition to No10 Downing Street.
Ben also attended an SAS briefing event in the House of Commons attended by over 20 MPs, 11 times European longboard champion Ben Skinner, Magicseaweed founder Ben Freeston and supporters from across the UK.
Following the success of the petition and these events, Surfers Against Sewage will now be inviting all coastal MP’s to form an All Party Parliamentary Group that will push for improvements to laws protecting oceans, waves & beaches. We’ll also be working on specific questions relating to the campaign issues to put to the House of Commons, and working towards a full House Debate.
