Surfers: Don’t mess with mother nature
A GROUP of concerned surfers took to the streets yesterday to protest the building of a breakwater on the shores where they surf.
With surfboards and placards in hand, about eight surfers marched from the Holetown Police Station, St James, past the Sandy Lane Hotel, to Esso Service Station at Paynes Bay.
The march was led by president of the Friends for the Protection of Surf and Beach, Samuel Inniss, who has been vocal about the building of breakwater by Beach Regeneration Incorporated along Sandy Lane Bay and the adjacent beachhead.
Inniss is adamant that the project will destroy the beaches and affect the ways surfers and regular beachgoers can use the area.
“Once you mess with Mother Nature or you mess with the ocean, some way it is going to affect the beach negatively in another location,” Inniss said.
