Surfrider Beach Clean at Whiffin Spit

In photography by webmeister Bud

One month ago today, I was pounding up and down Whiffin Spit with many pounds of camera gear bouncing off my body, carrying a steadicam rig, and wearing hip waders.

Yup, that’s what shooting in hip waders gets ya. =)

As part of the Surfrider Foundation Combing the Coast beach cleanups, 150 amazing Zoners — both the staff variety and listener variety — descended on Whiffin Spit with gloves, bags, and buckets to clean that sucker up and, within a few short hours, 1,600 POUNDS of garbage was taken off of that beautiful area.

I was there mainly to shoot video (this video) . . .

. . . but couldn’t pass up the opportunity, as time allowed, to take a few stills of the AMAZING day we had in which to clean up.
