Surf Forecast 8-4-2014

A quick update for Tropical Storm Bertha:

Some lines from Bertha will be arriving now through mid-week at spots above the Bahamas shadow. Since Bertha is moving rather quickly and isn't too powerful, swell potential is limited. That being said, standouts in the Space Coast and north will see waves in the chest+ range. Winds are forecast to be offshore for the peak on Tuesday, too. It will drop off rapidly on Wednesday and be just about flat on Thursday.

Go get some!

Kelly Slater in Miami Beach

The Surfrider RAP team met up with 11 time ASP World Champ Kelly Slater, here on Miami Beach this past weekend. Kelly is a long time Surfrider supporter, and was impressed with our Rise Above Plastics (RAP) campaign. We hope to have Kelly provide additional support in the near future for our state-wide plastic bag ban initiative.

Don't forget the Surfrider movie night on the 25th! Check the DCS forum for more info.

It is with a very heavy heart that I inform the local surf community that Nick Miller, 30 drowned off Hillsburough Beach this weekend. Nick is the son of George Miller, surfer, shaper and East Coast Hall of Fame member and one of my closest friends. As a parent, it is unbearable for me to concieve the emotions George is feeling at this time. His oldest son, Logan and his family are with George and are a great comfort. Please consider George in your thoughts and as George does,  appreciate all that we take for granted
