Surfrider Foundation released a documentary to raise awareness of the hidden dangers that are affecting the quality of the water in Long Island, New York. But "Surfrider Into The Sea" is just an example that could very well apply to any coastal region.

Life on the east end of Long Island revolves around water. The ocean provides work and pleasure for millions of people.

"There's a lot that's special about Long Island. The opportunities for outdoor recreation - particularly those centered around the water - are endless," underlines Andy Brosnan, a member of Surfrider Foundation's Eastern Long Island Chapter.
