Someone has taken it upon themselves to place a make-shift, unplumbed toilet in the woods and near the creek, just south of the agate Beach Trail and access. That’s right a porcelain throne, brimming with excrement, swiftly delivering poop and pathogens into the lineup of one of your favorite surf spots. A wag of the finger, make that the middle, to the individual that has prioritized their bow constraints over the health and well-being of the many that utilize this beach and ocean environment.

The makeshift toilet discovered by OPRD last week at Agate Beach

The toilet was found about 100 feet south of the famous palm tree at the Agate beach trail head. Oregon Parks and Recreation Department removed this nasty thing but we’ve still got a serious problem with the individual(s) that did this. For the surfers at Agate beach, we hope it wasn’t one of you. Furthermore if it is one of you, this makes the rest of us surfers look pretty damn bad. Surfrider chapters and volunteers work hard to instill stewardship and conservation within Oregon’s surf and beach culture and this just makes it hard for us all out here fighting the good fight. Seriously folks, we can love our beaches, let’s just not love them to death.

And now, a little throwback Thursday moment for levity (click on the photo for video clip:))
