Kelly Slater SAS campaign launches M&C Saatchi images
THE next stage of a nationwide campaign to protect our seas has been launched with the unveiling of images by acclaimed photographer Scott Rhea and advertising agency M&C Saatchi.
The series of Protect Our Waves images, depicting surfers preserved in specimen jars, explores the theme of extinction, highlights the environmental issues that threaten UK waves.
Hugo Tagholm, chief executive of Surfers Against Sewage says: “Surfers Against Sewage is excited to launch these stunning, strangely beautiful yet dystopian images as part of the Protect Our Waves campaign, highlighting the environmental threats to UK surfing.”
Scott Rhea said: “Marine protection is an issue I care passionately about and I hope that my contribution will shine a light on the issues SAS is addressing to protect waves, oceans and beaches for everyone.

“I have had first hand experience living in areas where the raw sewage was being dumped and people had to choose between their health or enjoying the ocean. This is a decision that nobody should ever have to make.”
Over the past year, the Protect Our Waves petition has received tens of thousands of signatures of support. It calls for better protection for the coastal environment and those that use it.
Next week, on October 22, SAS campaigners will be joined by 11-time world surfing champion Kelly Slater to discuss Protect Our Waves issues with Members of Parliament at the Palace of Westminster, then deliver the petition to the one of the most recognisable doors in the World, No10 Downing Street.
