Andy Cummins

Campaigns Director at SAS

Andy started surfing way back in 1992 in the North East. Back then surfing in the North Sea was similar to surfing in an open sewer.

This served as great inspiration and drive to bring about change, but at 15 he never thought he could be an active part of that movement. So the most he did was join Surfers Against Sewage (SAS).
