Trashy wave: prize winner

The most popular float at this year's Huntington Beach Fourth of July Parade was made out of trash.

Andre Faubert, a Huntington Beach resident and volunteer for the Surfrider Foundation Huntington Beach/Seal Beach Chapter, spent one month gathering trash for one hour a day along the city's shoreline.

By the time he finished, he had collected more than 580 pounds of garbage, including bottle caps, plastic bags and Styrofoam which he used to create a visual demonstration of the devastating effects of litter on our oceans.

Not only did Faubert make an impression on all those who attended the parade, but the chapter and the float took home the first place prize.

A German company specialized in designing and build wake park features announced the creation of the world's first floating outdoor surf pool.
