We had a crew of over 30 folks there and it was great to be outdoors enjoying a nice cool evening. If you haven't checked out Surfrider's revamped website - check it out! The new events calendar is very cool and if you've got something you'd like to have considered for being added, just drop a line with the details to firstname.lastname@example.org
We'll keep you posted on a cool Surfrider 2008 Calendar coming soon along with a Dune Restoration project for 34th St., tentatively scheduled for either Jan 5th or 6th.
It's election time in the SFL Chapter, learn more about the positions available and consider submitting a nomination (self nominations only).

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.

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.

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.
