SURFRIDER TRIBE HITS THE WARPATH

     JOIN THE FIGHT!  Send an email to Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez. ACT NOW!

Chop-o-matic is thumping and south Haulover Inlet is the place to be.  Surfrider is laying it on the line to get final victory in protecting that spot.  We've learned that the Florida Department of Transportation has offered Dade County the opportunity to take over the parking lots up there.  FDOT will be meeting Mayor Alvarez on Thursday and we've got 3 days to email the heck out of the Mayor's Office and let him know he should accept the offer.  You can learn all the details about this by clicking here.  Tell your friends, we need everyone to get involved!

SURFRIDER MTG - THURSDAY SEPT. 27TH - 7PM @ MB BOTANICAL GARDEN

Well it was a great run of fun surf, especially for summer and no hurricane in our swell window.  Only bummer was seeing that my homebreak in mid-beach is pretty f'd up from all the sand they've been dumping. I feel like I've lost a friend.  

The Surfrider tribe is all over fighting this junk and doing good things for our waves and beaches.  Surfrider tribe gatherings are always a cool vibe, always pizza and drinks served, always the last Thursday of every month, 7pm at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden.

Forecast Tj

Will there be waves on Friday?

UPDATE: Well it's been a nice run but the 11sec period waves on the inner canaveral bouy are gone and honestly I can't remember the last time we got 4 days of waves.  Talked to folks (Abe, my man!) that got 7 seshs in on this swell.  Fingers crossed that we got something in the AM.

Seems the little sneeker swell from yesterday continues. Nothing to get excited about just some thigh high peelers with an occasional waister if you give it time. I reccomend a longboard for the fun factor.

Seems the system went down this AM, hopefully the bugs are worked out.

BTW - Upcoast is looking good, though the onshores have set in.
