Rising Tide #94 – Surfing (and Diving’s) Dirty Secret

On this episode of Rising Tide we talk with surfers and filmmakers Lewis Arnold and Chris Nelson about their upcoming documentary “The Big Sea”. This startling expose takes a look at the links between the manufacture of neoprene (chloroprene rubber), used in wetsuits and the toxic pollution and high-cancer risks faced by low-income communities adjacent to neoprene’s main manufacturing plant in Louisiana’s “cancer alley”. Learn about the costs – and natural alternatives – to chloroprene in our latest show.
