Community Cleanup Kicks Off Surf Meet
Earlier today, a group of volunteers helped collect plastic debris at Honolua Bay ahead of the World Surf League Lululemon Maui Pro.
Caretaker Les Potts led volunteers in gathering two 30 yard containers worth of litter. Other participants assisted in cleaning up an old encampment.
Event organizers say all recyclable marine debris will be shipped to a recycling facility.
Another cleanup will be held on Dec. 30. Participants will be installing signs to inform the public on how to protect the area.
Surfers will hit the water for the Lululemon Maui Pro on Monday, with three American athletes slated to compete.
Carissa Moore is looking to secure her historic fourth World Title. To do so, she must hold off late season pushes from Lakey Peterson and Caroline Marks as they both chase their first title.
The winner will leave Honolua Bay with a World Title and a spot on the American Olympic team.
The competition will be streamed live here through Dec. 6.
