A small rant
As Santa Maria gears up for the Professional Windsurfing Association's world tour it is really sad to see that in setting up for it, heavy lorries have churned up the beach. Ironically narrowly missing our sign asking people not to drive on turtle nesting beaches. (Should be grateful that they didn't just plough into I suppose). Surely this is the time to be showcasing the beauty of Ponta Preta, not inviting people to come and see it's destruction? Even worse is that there is a perfectly good road that goes to exactly the same place, you just have to drive 200m further on to get to it. What a shame the organisers of an environmentally friendly sport don't make the connection.
