It is with a very heavy heart that I inform the local surf community that Nick Miller, 30 drowned off Hillsburough Beach this weekend. Nick is the son of George Miller, surfer, shaper and East Coast Hall of Fame member and one of my closest friends. As a parent, it is unbearable for me to concieve the emotions George is feeling at this time. His oldest son, Logan and his family are with George and are a great comfort. Please consider George in your thoughts and as George does, appreciate all that we take for granted

Flat Flat Flat.
BUT! We have a tropical disturbance off the Florida coast about 150 miles east of Melbourne Beach. NHC is forecasting the storm to get better organized, and become a tropical depression and/or cyclone in the coming days.
While we're not seeing any reason to bail out of work yet, this storm is in our window and forecast to organize and strengthen. Something to monitor, that's for sure!

You may have missed World Oceans Day on June 8th, but it's never too late to DO SOMETHING to make our playground a little cleaner. Plus you still have International Surfing Day on June 20th!

May 15th at the Surfrider Meeting at the MB Botanical Gardens - 7 to 9:15 p.m. Wave forecasting expert to speak at Surfrider Foundation Miami Community meeting:
Alex Gibbs, Senior Forecaster with the National Weather Service, will speak at our community meeting this month. Gibbs possesses a keen understanding of and passion for nearshore wave modeling.
This will be a treat for the hard-core surf community, the amatuer wave forecasters among us (where's Pete Ferrer?) and the public safety community since Gibb's talk will include rip current dynamics.
Surfrider will also update the community on key initiatives, activism options, serve pizza & beer and flash some hot surf footage on the screen.
