They’re former surf spots. There’s no surf in there anymore. Death to dreams of perfect waves. Man destroys what nature makes.

Humans have continuously been destroying some of the best surf spots in the world. From Asia to America, multiple high-quality break have lost the battle against marinas, urban runoff, oil spills, fishing, ports, military bases and industrial development.

Yes, we’ve lost world-class wave peaks. In some cases, a perfect ride was destroyed in less than 24 hours. Hardly any surf spot wins a battle against progress, or what decision-makers call progress.
