First up, FDOT has called a public Meeting for Tuesday, July 15th - 7-9pm @ the Gwen Margolis Community Center - 15590 NE 123rd St. North Miami. Here's a link to a letter FDOT recently forwarded - THIS IS SERIOUS SHIT - they're thinking of making the entire parking lot under the Baker's Haulover Bridge permit parking only! A HUGE showing by the surfing, fishing, and recreational community will get a BIG message across - I'LL FER SURE BE AT THIS MEETNG, DON'T LET ME DOWN - NEED YOU THERE TOO!
Second, City of Miami Beach wants to build a "Skate Plaza" their current proposal is a pretty weak design but we can push for improvement. They're having a meeting Tuesday, July 22nd 6pm at our good ole Miami Beach Botanical Garden (home to our Surfrider movies) about a new location they've chosen behind the Miami Beach Convention Center Loading Dock. Here's a Google Map to show you where. Heere's the dealeeo - the historic preservation folks want to kill the Skate Plaza thing, hell if you can't build a skate plaza behind a loading dock - where the f*ck can you??? Check-out the flyer about this, I hope IWS - Quik - Liquid Tube - M.I.A - Fritz's - UNIV and all the other shops jump on this, show up and bring the troops. This an opportunity to show that skating is good business AND the location is awesome being right across from Miami Beach High.
IF Y'ALL WANT RESPECT YOU GOTTA SHOW UP AND FIGHT FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks to all who showed up and supported the Surfrider movie event last night. A good time was had by all. Great to see so many familiar faces and locals both past and present. The wine and spirits were flowing and the food went fast. Special thanks to Mike Adams and Lucie Bejamin for helping me out with the food production. Film was great, Wilder has come a long way since I first saw his flicks years back. I particularly liked the helmet and board cams on Gerry Burdine's rides. Not to mention the smoooth ripping by Dave-O and others. Cache I hope you liked the Reserva Wine i turned you onto.
Not much on the wave front but patience my friends, soon enough
Again thanks for supporting, Enjoy

>>>FLASH<<<< The menu is being calculated now so PLEASE buy your tickest now so we can get a head count for food and drinks. We don't wan't to get too much or worse, too little.
Yo Brothers and Sisters I am back from the dead! Been travelling the State working on getting ocean outfalls closed, implementing a National Ocean Policy and flat out trying to save the planet in whatever way I can. So I am ready to cut loose this Friday for the Surfrider Movie Night. I've been blown away by how much the local crew has been doing and none of it is possible without the community coming together, sharing a little moola for a good time - giving the team the resources they need to do dune restorations, children's coloring books, beach clean-ups, fighting for beach access. So buy a ticket for yourself and and a friend and know that you helped Surfrider do the good things they do.
Also, you just might win one of those golden gift certificates from the New Times Best Rated Surf Shop in Miami - Island Water Sports. FYI - Scott is having his SUPER SUMMER SALE starting the day after the Surfrider Movie - Sat 10-6pm - Sun 11-6pm. EVERYTHING in the store 20% to 60% off and $50 off new surfboards (Hey Scott - does that include the SUP board I need - he, he , he, he!)

So the International Surfing Day BBQ was supposed to be a small, little, social chill. BUT NO! Surfrider members responded with BIG numbers. DAMN! So now we have a full blown blow out. So if you got an invite confirmed please bring a chair, we got the rest.
OK with that response in mind and the number of tickets sold already for BANDITOS, from Wilder Films, folks should get on board sooner rather than later for this event. Aso check it out:
MIKE ADAMS (-the old man on the longboard bonzer) is maken his killer Bali chicken curry and cocoanut rice. PETE THE MEAT MAN is maken Chilian salmon burgers compradre and LUCY the FRENCH COOK and wife of JULIAN B the Jamaican, will be making some special delights. I'm getten the beer so don't miss this one. If you are one of the hundreds of locals that have attended our events in the past you know what we're talking about-if you want to get in on the action don't delay.
