International outdoors company Patagonia helps Bastion campaign

International outdoor equipment and clothing company Patagonia has featured the Bastion Point Campaign in their northern hemisphere summer 2010 Surfwear catalogue.  Bastion Point is just one of the waves listed as ‘endangered’ by Save the Waves, and other waves in danger of destruction are also featured in the catalogue. Steve Wadsworth’s photo of Bastion Point will also be used in Patagonia’s US stores for their summer 2010 surfwear campaign.

Please download a reduced version (5 MB) of the Patagonia Catalogue here, which contains the Bastion Point article (p26), and other salient articles about losing surfbreaks.

Take note of the ‘Lessons Learned’ on Dana Point in California. Surfers were told that an artificial reef would replace the break – to make way for a breakwater harbour construction to provide ‘affordable boating’.  Neither promise materialised.
