What is direct environmentalism?
Direct environmentalism is a concern for the preservation, restoration, or improvement of the natural environment that is evidenced by practical behavior by an individual that has an immediate and substantial positive environmental effect.
Simple means something we can readily accomplish so that we actually can help. Living simply means practicing direct environmentalism for as many of our daily decisions as we reasonably can.
Surf large? Well, some of us make a backside left look a little better than others, but none of us believe in intentional cut-offs. We make the most of every paddle-out and take that feeling home with us. We surf every day like it's our last, and then we plan to surf after we're dead for good measure. Drop in with grace, whether on a wave, to your grandma's house, or at a campfire.
Practice simple, direct environmentalism because it helps and leaves more time to surf large. Be practical, scientific and efficient to make your life footprint a little smaller. We're all a bit guilty of environmental excess. However, some behaviors are environmentally unjustifiable - e.g., throwing cigarette butts on the beach. Is it really that important to mountain-bike off the designated trail? Leave the uncharted way for your kid to appreciate someday. If you have a reasonable choice, make the right one. Educate yourself. You may eat fish to be healthy, but the average weight of a swordfish caught in 1963 was 263 pounds and was 90 pounds in 1995.
