Surfer Gliding Through Trash-Filled Wave
Indonesia’s most famous surfer Dede Suryana surfing in the trash-filled wave. Surf photographer Zake Noyle captured this photograph who searches the world looking for the perfect surfing pictures.
Despite the natural beauty of Indonesia, it is well known for its trash-filled water. As reported by National Geographic, the Citarum River has so much garbage floating in it that you cannot see the water, making it impossible to fish in.
Marine wildlife – such as fish and turtles – often get into difficulty because they mistake plastic bags for food. This also creates problems for humans as the fish which are captured by fishermen often contain high levels of chemical toxins. These harmful toxins are then absorbed by people who eat the fish.
