Nole Cossart


A True Blue & Green Adventure: For more than two weeks, Chadd Konig and Nole Cossart have been paddling south. Looking to raise public awareness about plans to develop the historic Naples property on the Gaviota Coast, the two surfers decided to paddle from the untouched paradise of Gaviota deep into the belly of the beastL.A., Orange County, San Diego, and Mexico. Harkening back to the days of adventure, self-reliance, and untamed nature that were once the calling card of California, Konig and Cossart’s journey is the ultimate fit for our annual Blue & Green issue: an adventure in the big blue of the Pacific in hopes of saving the great green of the Gaviota.
