I see that The Independent today has an article railing against the launch of a service by BA to Newquay on Tuesday. In her opinion piece, Greenpeace's Emily Armistead adds further to that article and coins the phrase "binge-flying". This is a very difficult issue, particularly for surfers. Most would probably claim to care very much about the environment and may be active in causes such as Surfers Against Sewage. However, does that then make us hypocrites when we step on a flight to a remote surfing destination? I don't know the solution, but this is a debate worth having both in public and with ourselves.
