people have lamented the pollution and outright loss of beaches along
the coasts of California and Mexico, but very few people have fought on
behalf of beaches as hard -- or as successfully -- as Serge Dedina.
Whether taking on an international conglomerate or tackling a state
transportation agency, Dedina is truly an eco-warrior.
|In this sparkling collection of articles, many written for popular
magazines, Dedina tells the stories as only an insider could.
He writes with a firm grasp of facts along with an advocate's passion
and outrage. Sprinkled with just the right mix of humor and surf lingo,
Dedina's writing is "weapons grade" -- surfer speak for totally awesome.
