Yep, we're in for a week of sloppy, choppy, lumpy, bumpy, dumpy wind chop but hey it's what we're all weaned on so...it keeps us strong. We're also on the verge of monumental political challenge; especially on Miami Beach, the homefront for most environment, development and beach access issues. Early voting sites opened today and I STRONGLY encourage you to go vote if there is an election in your community. Off year elections are notorious for low turnout, so a community such as ours can have a BIG impact on who wins and loses. You can check out the Miami Herald reccomendations or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to know my personal picks. GO SURF - GO VOTE - BE STRONG - MAKE A BETTER FUTURE FOR EVERYONE.

The crew gathers tonight, be good to see folks - it's been awhile. As usually pizza and drinks served, time to talk, hear from folks on what's going on out there and get some updates on the campaigns Surfrider's fighting. Got a call from the Mayor's Office and County Manager's Office yesterday about Bal Harbour and I'll give the low down on that. Here's a link to a google map for the Botanical Garden.

Local surfer and filmmaker Andrew Peterson writes in to say:
"I though that you might want to throw up a link to the Quiksilvers Hurricane Chasers project in the Bahamas that we just came back from. I shot and edited the entire video along with the motion graphics and when we flew over Harbour House I couldn't help but get a cool shot which I had to include! Check it out and I think it would be a cool topic for our SFL surfers being that the Bahamas has always been so close and such an interesting spot for us.
The surfers on the trp were local Matt Kechele, Ryan Helm, Skeeter Zimmerman, and Tanner Strohmenger. Shooting was myself Andrew Petersen and Brian Bielmann."
Go to this first link and click on the video, its some pretty sweet stuff. Very good quality!
