Litter, wastewater, industrial products and chemicals–it is all ending up in the sea. There are some people that observe and feel the pollution day by day with their own body: surfers. Their love of nature and the water gives them the strength to go out, investigate and search for the source of the pollution. The team of White Waves traveled for two years along the beaches of Europe to meet those surfers and reveal widely unknown cases of pollution – from millions of small plastic wheels to pathogenic bacteria in the sea.
