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.

Surfrider Monthly Membership Meeting
Thursday, November 29th - 7pm
Miami Beach Botanical Garden

Time to share the news and hear the concerns folks have.

As always, pizza and drinks served!

Lots going on: elections are coming up, activism campaigns on clean water, global warming and local beach projects are getting rolling. Now's the chance to jump-in, grab the wheel and steer the chapter to new heights. Leaders wanted!

Report tc

server maintenance tonite

the server company told me they are performing some maintenance late tonite at some point between 1 and 4am. I'm hoping that nothing breaks, but been there and done that, and usually there's something. I'll check in early Sunday, but feel free to email me if something is busted.

Stoked for ya!

Man, when I hoped y'all got the goods, little did I realize! Surf wise things have been good down here in CR -waist to chest with occasional overhead sets; gettin 2-3 sessions a day. The housing situation though has been a DISASTER and fortunately Scott Payne up at IWS North Miami has saved me from a fate worse than death.

This is the annual Thanksgiving Trip with the Mrs. so, ya know - the hotel needs to be A grade. Unfortunately, the place we usually shack at had construction next door, broken A/C, a nighttime attempted break-in to our room (while we´re in it),no hot water - then no water at all! After returning from a 3rd session on Monday I got the visceral, "If you want to avoid hours of marriage counseling when we get back - you better find me a decent place to stay!"

Oh Sh*t, is right! Visions of missed sessions sitting in some room being told how lame I am went flashing through my brain. Fortunately before I left Scott had told me about his bud from High School who opened a cool cafe and sandwich shop here in the town we´re stayin. Went by for lunch, made friends, got a good recommendation (brand new European style joint), wife is praising me, counselling near-death avoided - WHEW!!!

So, Big PROPS to Scott - ya saved me brother! While y'all are scoring waves and supposedly doing the Holiday shopping shuffle, keep Scott and the crew at IWS - North Miami (www.iwsmiami.com) in mind. Doin business with good people makes the gift giving twice as nice.

ThanksGiving Forecast

Happy Thanksgiving week. Time to kick back a bit from the hustle and bustle. Tuesday should see Good ol slop o chop with the winds increasing to 15-20 out of the East. The models hint of that glancing blow swell with West winds on Friday. The odds are low so don't get too excited. If this were to occur you would need to drive at least to the Treasure coast.  PR looks like it will get plenty of swell from this monster low but it's just too far out in the Atlantic for us.  Still worth keeping an eye on. Good idea to check the Buoys on Turkey day.
