Against Sewage’s (SAS) new campaign Protect Our Waves (POW) campaign is
having its first action, The Gathering, and we need you to get
involved! Simply turn up to Kimmeridge Bay with your wetsuit and board
at 10am on Saturday the 20th of June, International Surfing Day and
show the MoD how important waves are to surfers and waveriders. This is
your chance to be an active part of a solution-based campaign
Gathering will be a mass paddle out at Kimmeridge to demonstrate how
significant and passionate the UK’s surfing and wave-riding communities
are, not least local Bournemouth and Dorset surfers. Winning this

interest! The Gathering will form the foundations for the Broadbench
campaign and we need the foundations to be as strong as possible. We
need you to attend!

surfers and waveriders can have 100% access to Broadbench without
impacting on the MOD’s full use of the firing range.
are calling on the MoD to revert to a previous firing station, changing
where they fire from. This will in turn change the direction of their
firing and leave Broadbench outside the boundary of the firing range.
Leaving surfers and waveriders with 100% access to Broadbench without
it impacting on the MoD in any way.
