Register Here!

6th Annual Stand Up! For the Bay

Hosted by the Coos Bay Surfriders and South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve

Stand Up! For The Bay is a community event designed to bring our bay and waterways into the focus of citizens in our community. The event will take place in downtown Coos Bay, at the public dock/boardwalk on September 24th, 2016 @ 9:00am.

Those in attendance can choose between participating in the community paddle, or a shoreline clean-up. Kick-off for either starts promptly at 9am at the Coos Bay Boardwalk. The paddling group will either stand up paddle, canoe, or kayak, in the bay along a route that is designed for ease of travel, with consideration of tide and wind direction. The route will be moderate in length and will take 1-2 hours. A boat and two lifeguards will be on watch for safety purposes. LIFEJACKETS ARE REQUIRED! Non paddlers can walk along the boardwalk in either direction collecting shoreline garbage. Gloves, buckets, and bags will be provided.

All participants will congregate again at 10am after the paddle and clean-up on the boardwalk, or in the Broadway Theater (depending on weather), for a luau, live music by the Clam Diggers, and educational activities by South Slough NERR. There will be a paddle joust tournament at 12pm. All participants are welcome to compete, Stand Up board will be provided but wetsuits will not.

Please pre-register online HERE or at Waxer’s Surfshop for $10. Kids under 12 participate for free. Event-day registration is $12. Registration includes the community paddle and/or shoreline clean-up, a meal ticket, a beer ticket, and entry into the paddle joust. Shirts sold separately. Any proceeds will help fund the Blue Water Task Force, Coos Bay Surfrider’s monthly water quality testing program and other local Surfrider programs.

Trouble at Bastendorff: How unfettered beach access can be an issue

Bastendorff is a special place for our Surfrider chapter, it’s the place we all go to take our dogs to run free, surf (every now and then it’s good), camp and connect with the ocean. Keeping it clean was the inspirational action that led to the development of our chapter and continues to be a focal point today. Bastendorff is unique in that it is one of the few easily accessible spots in Oregon where you can camp for free on the beach – a feature that, while in the spirit of Oregon, comes with a series of challenges.
