we have an infant mortality rate on par with many severely impoverished nations
people are dying simple because they can’t afford treatment for easily remedied ailments
with all this shit going, contracting an exotic disease is the absolute least of our worries

Surfing for Healthy Oceans
Titans of Mavericks and the Aquarium are teaming up to shape a future with healthy oceans.
The Aquarium will be the official conservation partner of the world’s premier big wave surfing event, held annually in Half Moon Bay at the most iconic big wave surfing spot in the nation.
“Through this groundbreaking partnership, Monterey Bay Aquarium will help drive focused initiatives and ocean conservation awareness through the athletes who compete in this highly anticipated event,” said Griffin Guess, president of Cartel Management, which directs the newly re-faced Titans of Mavericks event and festival.
“We know that the surfing community is passionate about the ocean,” said Mimi Hahn, vice president of marketing and communications for the Aquarium. “As the conservation partner of the Titans of Mavericks, we hope to weave the message of ocean protection through every element of the event and to help its audiences engage more deeply in safeguarding the ocean that sustains all life on our planet.”
“The goal of Titans of Mavericks is to empower the athletes as ambassadors who can drive public awareness of the threats facing our oceans, and help inspire the fans of Mavericks to do more to protect the living ocean,” said Zach Wormhoudt, a waterman and big wave surfer from Santa Cruz. He’s one of 56 surfers vying to be among the 24 selected to compete in Titans of Mavericks in 2015.
