Here come the onshores - Check out the N fetch though!

Well, life of a SoBe surfer - deal with it my peeps. Big ole' freight train of N fetch lining up just as the winds turn onshore. At least we get some bread and butter though it's tough to bear when you were expectin filet mignon.

Don't forget to RSVP for Surfrider's Dune Restoration on January 5th at 34th St. in Miami Beach. Plenty o' SoBe life water I mean plenty of coffee to keep you warm and motivated, free parking as well.

Later that night da killa After-Party at BBQ Beach. A cool surf flick compliments of the crew at IWS North Miami and a bombin slide show of local surf action from photog Oscar Socarras. BBQ Beach is throwin in a Beer Special - Oh no he didn't say it - Yes I did!

Miami Herald: [Surfrider] seeks better access.

Hope everyone is getting the goods with this Christmas gift swell. If you could take a minute and link through to the Miami Herald article about Bal Harbour and write a message in the Blog at the bottom of the story that would be a great Holiday gift to Surfrider. The more blog posts, the more potential for a follow-up story. Vent your anger about what's going on with beach access, post it on the Herald; then copy and paste it here! I put mine in the first post.

BTW for those that don't know all the details about the Bal Harbour issue check out the picture and video summary and then the chronology of events on the SFL Surfrider website.

Surfer in the House!

Hey folks if you haven't heard the news, long time surfer and Surfrider member Tony Sasso has thrown his hat in the ring to become a State Representative.  It's always important to have folks friendly to our concerns in high places.  Tony is running for the seat vacated by the disgraced Bob Allen (solicited a police officer for a BJ).

Even though the race is in the Brevard - Orange County area, it's important that the Florida surf community  get behind Tony.  Here's a link to Tony Sasso's  website, talk with folks you know up in that area about Tony.  Support a fellow surfer, donate to Tony's campaign; $5, $20, $100..whatever you can do will go a long way in getting representation for surfers in the State House. 

If you have good contacts with any surf shops, websites, blogs, civic associations or folks who can do groundwork for Tony on reaching out to people in the Brevard - Orange County area be sure to drop me an email.  tjmarshall@bellsouth.net   Thanks!
