Description

The brothers Ryan and Bryson Robertson, along with friend Hugh Patterson, set sail from Mexico with a dream to circumnavigate the world and surf. Over the course of the next three years, their lives change dramatically through the beaches they visit, the people they meet and a new found sense of global community through the oceans.
In their journey, they travel a total of 40,000 nautical miles, crossed all the major oceans of the world and visited some 40 countries documenting the pollution on “”pristine”” beaches. It is a sad illustration of just how the world’s pollution affects not only locally, but globally. Education, exposure and solutions are desperately needed to ensure this pattern doesn’t continue into the future. For more information on this project, please visit http://www.oceangybe.com/.
