The Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world's oceans, waves and beaches for all people, through conservation, activism, research and education.
These videos are awesome!
Looking back at the replay, it almost looks like Ft. Desoto whipped our butts. Not only did they seem to have more people, but they seemed gosh darn almost "organized". Surely the Beaches of SoWal can play that game. We demand a recount... let's see if DeSoto (wherever that's at) can field more HATS than we can, in the middle of March. I bet, if we did it again, pooled our resources, our handshakes, (and rented a dad-bum helicopter!) We could beat that beach...
Lots of people in the Tampa Bay area, many of them retired and staffing multiple orgs like Sierra Club, Audubon, etc. Plenty of youth movement also.
oh I love this one! the people held hands in a big circle.
That doesn't necessarily mean we can't trash talk them into a "duel to the dune", handshake to handshake...Maybe they get more hands on the board, but do they get that dramatic flyby we will get...
A special thank you to Kurt for your tireless and organized efforts to run sowal.com so everyone can have a common meeting ground, stay informed, and offer info. It is addicting and alot of fun. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and a curtsy to the moderators as well. God bless you, or don't worry be happy, whichever appeals to you.
Don't worry about the friendship requests, just click the thank you button :funn:;-)
Thank the stars for wireless netbooks. It would be hard to run this baby from the beach without one.
