“When our species was born, we looked out at a chaotic world and the human brain imposed order and meaning in myriad ways, looking ahead and imagining the world into being. That was our great gift. So now the challenge is to imagine a different world where our wealth is in human relations and the things we do together, and we learn to live in balance with the rest of nature.”      - David Suzuki


My Message:
"Changing the Way we live on the Planet"!...

My name is Bob Purdy, I am the "Standup Paddlesurfing, Elder in Training" from Paddle for the Planet"!
I have been paddling my Standup Paddlesurfer every day since January 1, 2011 to "Change the Way we live on the Planet"!
It would seem that we have lost our connection to "Nature", our own, and the bigger "Nature" at large. We have significant challenges environmentally, socially and economically. The "David Suzuki Foundation" has been tackling these problems for decades, and I felt the need to pitch in and do my part. "Paddle for the Planet" was created to bring action to problems and challenges we are already aware of. In June of last year I also started "World Paddle for the Planet Day" where I invited paddlers around the World to paddle for the change they want to see. This has grown into an annual event, with the 2013 edition coming in Florida October 10-13th. There are many "Planet Paddlers" and "Planet Changers" coming to this years event for a 24 hour paddle, an eco festival, summit, and more to send a "Wave of Change" around the globe!
