HOWEVER, this year it runs smack head-on into “Fathers’ Day” and this really messed-up our planning for the event. Therefore, the Santa Cruz Chapter will celebrate INTERNATIONAL SURFING DAY on Saturday, June 19.

The Medflys @ Don Quixote’s

April 1, 2010



Tuesday April 13th, 7-8:30 p.m.
Simpkins Swim Center
979 17th Ave, Santa Cruz

Josh Berry from the Save The Waves Coalition is going to be here to show slides and video from their recent earthquake relief trip to Chile and the ongoing situation there.

If you don’t know about Save The Waves, you should, because the group is one of the Surfrider Foundation’s “partners” in coastal preservation. STW does excellent work around the globe advocating for saving surf breaks threatened by coastal “development”. WHAT? DID YOU THINK THIS WAS ONLY A PROBLEM IN THE U.S.A?!

You really have to see this to believe it! STW was on it in Chile because they’ve been working to save the big-wave break at Santos Del Mar!
