Global warming - how can climate change help with the development of surf spots? you sholuld think about the broader picture, like how the Maldives and Atoll surf spots could dissapear due to the melting of ice sheets causing a rise in sea level... i feel the courtesies of global warming towards surfing communities are less positive than you think.
