We need to do more about the sewage and pollution contaminating our recreational and coastal waters.
The less crap washed into our waters, the less likely we’ll catch a filthy infection. The infections listed above are just the tip of the iceberg.
So find a local environmental group and see what you can do to make our oceans a safer place to surf. Surfers Against Sewage is a great place to start for British surfers.
Oh, and if the water’s unusually brown – don’t go in.
