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!

Surf Today !!!

Back from Vaca, surfed little South swellies yesterday.  Today winds cranking NW since yesterday pm and to turn N/NNE sometime this morning. First light report for North Beach reporting small clean swell, nothing to get excited for. Sobe and Palm Beach reports are coming within minutes. Enjoy. Laughing

Is Santa Coming??

Hey, been up here in Fernandina Beach for the past 5 days.  Glad to see folks getting some of our homegrown bread and butter slop o' chop.  Does the body good as they say, eh?  Got lucky up here myself and winds were dead calm Thurs and Fri with a SE swell rolling in, thanking God I checked the forecast 30min before leaving for the airport on this business trip.  Water temps were chillin but no red tide.  Pretty cool little trip actually, got a brew at the oldest continously operating bar in Florida and played Santa for some foster kids - what a hoot!

Hittin the road back home today and checkin the forecast, seems we got potential for refracto in the Tri-county tomorrow, possibly some pure N swell associated with the MONSTER low going off the NE.  That's the pup which turned the midwest into a deep freeze and the whole State of Oklahoma into a disaster area.

Hopefully we get some early in the AM with lingering offshores.  It's back to bread and butter chop o' matic for the rest of the week after that.
