On Saturday, December 1, pro surfer and activist, Dave Rastovich (32, Byron Bay, NSW AUS), paddled into Piha on the last leg of his daunting 350km sea-paddle from Cape Taranaki to draw awareness to the threatened stretch of coast. Like-minded surfers joined him along the way, and there was a particularly magical moment when he was accompanied by no less than eight Maui’s dolphins off the Manukau Bar.
“This campaign is about awareness and education and supporting the great work of community based groups like KASM (Kiwis Against Seabed Mining). We’re urging people to just have a look at the facts and how that will impact them and their community,” said Rastovich.
