Dip A Day in October For Ocean Health

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Last year I dipped everyday in October to raise money and awareness for sewage in our seas. The campaign that was sparked by Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) and was completed by hundreds of thousands of people with a shared goal to make a splash about a really important cause is back on.


Sea to Sky

The challenge being to take to the sea, a pool, a puddle, a cold bath, a lake, any watery space to dip in what will almost defiantly be cold water  to stand up for the right to clean water and less s*** in our oceans.

A fantastic resource that SAS offer is a map to show up to date water quality results for people to decide if they swim or not. This kind of map should not have to exist in the first place but it allows people to try to swim more safely and to monitor their local coast and its wellbeing.


The alerts on many occasions have left swimmers, surfers, paddle boarders etc angry about the risks that seem to be heightening when thinking about accessing water for sport and recreation. Enough is enough. This campaign allows the people to be heard and for us to stand together as one about a cause that affects us all.

If you can, get involved with the challenge in October. If the challenge seems too big then tailor it to meet your ability and time allowances and just take part in any capacity you can. More people contributing makes more noise and that’s what we need.

‘The benefits of wild blue spaces to our health and wellbeing are irrefutable. And immersing yourself in cold water can calm the chaos, raise your dopamine and give you that zingy post-dip feeling. The Ocean helps us thrive. But it needs your help to thrive too. So, let’s Dip A Day in October to boost our wellbeing and raise funds to support our ocean-saving campaigns.’ SAS

Together we will change things. Join me and Surfers Against Sewage this October.
