SURF MOVIE: WALKING ON WATER, FRIDAY AT 7PM

This Friday Dec.7th at the Key Biscayne Beach Club there will be the SFL Premiere of "Walking on Water", FREE ADMISSION. They are going to have pro surfers from the movie at the premiere, a live DJ, complimentary drinks and snacks. $5 Raffle for surfboards, skateboards, t-shirts and more including apple i-touch and i-pods. The party is going to have a Caribbean Christmas theme.

This flick has gotten rave reviews, don't be shy that it has a FAITH theme. It's the true story of 2 young surfers traveling to the hottest surfing spots in the world with a pro surfer and meeting up with some amazing people along the way. These kids learn how beautiful God's creation is, how cool it is to meet others who live in different parts of the world, and that the more we get to know God the more we enjoy his creation, his people, and Himself.

Props to Ketih Case who's been at the center of pulling this event together. Francisco and the crew from Miami's budding Christian Surfers Chapter have noted they'll be there too.

SoBe Surfrider Mtg -Thur. Nov. 29th at 7pm

Wave forecast is looking pretty bleak.  Carlos at C-Shapes called it that the first opportunity appears to be a BIG low going off the east coast this weekend.  Maybe it pops something our way next week.
