Trash Pickup in Baja with Save The Waves

Las Gaviotas is a luxurious gated community just south of Rosarito in Northern Baja that happens to feature a very rippable right point break. I don’t usually like staying at a place like this, preferring the tree house, back of the truck, thatch-roof cabana style of sleeping arrangement, but when you get a group of interesting surfers and musicians together and rent 4 houses within easy hooting distance to the friends in the lineup, it’s worth over-looking the gated gringolandia faults.

On Saturday afternoon we cruised into Rosarito to meet up with a local running coach who is helping to give the kids of the neighborhood something to do by forming an athletic club. They made a track in a big brown dusty valley full of wind-blown trash, tires, and a surprising amount of cast-off footwear. We showed up with a bunch of trash bags and set to cleaning house with the help of the kids.
