Nominate someone for Dade County poster,


OK, so there's been a lot of discussion of the geeky enviro threads (would you pencil necks shut up already). I realize the group hug gets a little old to some of you, and I admit it can get a little gay at times. Not like greased up dildos gay, like gay gay. But I LOVE the way the site has been running in the past year. (Thanks AP for reminding me about the anniversary date).

The bridge protest was one of the coolest things done by the surfing community in South Florida history. Surfrider provides a positive image of surfers to mainstream America. Mostly I like the constant updates, and continued traffic to the site. There is still a spike when swells come, but traffic remains up even though there's no surf to talk about on a surf site. Hopefully this makes the advertisers happy, and I really URGE you to support them with your gear purchases. Thanks to all of the past and present advertisers who've helped keep this site going.

There is now a surfer in da House!!!!!!!


To all who contacted their peeps - THANK YOU!!

To all you whiners - back to our regular scheduled programming: it's flat, pray for waves.Tongue out

Actually, pray real hard and hope that the good karma of folks who went the extra mile smiles upon you. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha - so stoked!

Really though, keep an eye on the ocean after lunch and keep the reports comin. Winds predicted to shift NW 25kt in Cocoa first thing in the AM. That gives potential for refracto.

Waves on the way? cu B

Our crack crew of forecasters has been looken at the models and we have a shot at some north swell. Could be a Palm Beach County and North but cuB some here 2! Unbelievably bad year so this may be our best set up. Winds are forecast to be NW for about 20 hours or more. Starting Wednesday. If I can get this damn gash on my heal to .ah heal I could get in the water too. If Greg Gordo will ever get me my fins back from Costa so I can set up my favorite 5 fin rocket sled I might get some more waves and fewer stitches! So keep an eye on it for some south wind swellwave on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon, Thursday morning.

Otherwise get yo asss on the  O B A M A   BUS!

TIME IS NOW - Put a Surfer in da House!

Just wanted to drop a line about a solid ocean conservationist, Tony Sasso, who is in the final push to win a seat in the FL House of Representatives. Y’ all know politics is a rough business; politicians take a beating for not being everything that we want them to be…

Do me a favor though and look past that – think about our oceans and let your friends in the Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral, Merritt Island, north Brevard and eastern Orange County areas know about Tony. The TIME IS NOW to get the word out via, email, websites, blogs, and just plain word of mouth --- be true to Big Blue by giving Tony a hand.

Tony is a viable candidate with a TON of high profile endorsements, he also got more votes in the primary than his opponent in the opposite party; the challenge before him is to turn people out to vote during this off-cycle special election. Early voting opened today and runs through Feb. 23rd. The election itself is Feb. 26th. I’ve listed early voting sites below; they’re hyperlinked to Google Maps link so your friends can find the locations easy enough.

As y’all know I’m pretty passionate about ocean preservation and I hope you’ll do me a favor and take action on this. Do it as a fav, do it for Mother Ocean – JUST DO IT!
