Another unhappy story about us killing our oceans. Thanks to Anarchist John. Title inspiration thanks to Devo.

It could be said that the waves were perfect on a recent morning at a remote location in Java, in southern Indonesia.

Perfect, except for the appalling amount of trash and other debris, which transformed the typically amazing experience of getting barreled into one that left both surfer and photographer feeling nauseated. “It was crazy. I kept seeing noodle packets floating next to me,” said Zak Noyle, the photographer. “It was very disgusting to be in there; I kept thinking I would see a dead body of some sort for sure.”

As unpleasant as the experience might have been, however, Noyle’s remarkable photos showing local surfer Dede Suriyana inside a garbage-strewn wave beautifully illustrate the sometimes overwhelming pollution problem in Indonesia. “The trash had never been seen like this before in Indonesia; all of us were baffled,” said Noyle, a staff photographer for Surfer magazine. “The trash in Dede’s photo was the worst. No others came close to that type of disaster.” Read on.
