Fijian pro-surfer and ocean activist Hannah Bennett was the first winner of the 'Dirty Wave Challenge' which was launched in 2018.
The nonprofit 'Save the Waves' coalition launched a worldwide competition encouraging everyday beach goers and surfers to report trashed and threatened beaches.
The prize? A $5k grant that gives back to the winner's coastal community.
Check out how Hannah has used her grant in the video above.
