We caught up with our champion, Russell Carnard!
HP: Why do you choose to support Charleston Waterkeeper?
RC: We need a watchdog to ensure our water is clean, free of pollutants and other random crap, no pun intended, from floating around. CWK provides the checks and balances necessary to keep a close eye on this, which allows everyone and everything to enjoy all that our waterways have to offer.
HP: What is your favorite way to enjoy clean water?
RC: Surfing and boat drinks with my family.
HP: What is your favorite waterway in Charleston?
RC: Cedar Creek… when I am not getting stuck.
HP: Tell us something interesting about yourself that we might not know?
RC: At one point, I had one of largest collections of East Coast shaped surfboards from the 1960s- bottom line, it took up too much room at my house. Should have gotten into matchbox cars.
