It’s been millions of years since there was an ocean in Arizona. But tonight, the tide rolls back in. The Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival is hosting the Save the Waves Film Festival, a night of ocean activism from the viewpoint of surfers. Flagstaff is the first landlocked city to screen the films. Trey Highton is the director of the Save the Waves Coalition, and a lifelong surfer. He spoke with KNAU’s Gillian Ferris about the importance of taking care of the world’s oceans whether you live near or far from shore.
