A local man, Taylor Lane, is gathering thousands of discarded cigarettes to make surfboards out of them.

Lane, along with his partner, are trying to bring attention to ocean and beach pollution.

A feature-length documentary is being produced to outline Lane’s efforts.

They hope that it will be released in the Spring of 2022
