Kelly Slater helping environmental efforts to clean up Bali

Surfing’s 11-time and current world champion Kelly Slater is joining the effort to help clean up Bali by donating a surf board and offering to give his time and money to turn the tide of the seemingly careless disregard for the environment that has permeated the holiday island.

Slater has been spending the last few days in Bali surfing and visiting friends in between stops on the ASP World Tour, and was understandably aghast at seeing the large amounts of trash in the water and on the beaches of the previously pristine Bali. On April 23rd Slater sent out a series of “tweets” from his Twitter account describing his concern for Bali’s pollution problems that not only went out to his almost 200,000 followers it was also “re-tweeted” and has by now reached hundreds of thousands more in the surf industry and the international media.
