The 4th of July is coming up – and what does that mean? Fireworks and parties on the beach . . . and lots of debris littering our shores afterwards. Join us July 5 at Noon at Bastendorff Beach for our Annual “post 4th cleanup.” Show up at the middle parking lot, next to the restrooms. We’ll have our usual table setup with all the gear – grabbers, bags, bucket, magnets – plus coffee & libations to either get you going, or quench your thirst! We need all hands on deck for this one – and we’ll stay until we’ve gotten it cleaned up!
Between running a Blue Water Task Force lab and testifying in favor of legislation to ban polystyrene lunch trays in all Oregon schools, the Bandon High School Surfrider club has been busy this spring. Recently they found a little time to hit the beach for a day good ol’ fun and showing their special place some much needed love!
The Coos Bay Chapter’s first annual fundraiser was an incredibly fun (and successful!) event, filled with great food and drink, wonderful music and most importantly, overwhelming support from the community!
Experience the seminal 1966 surf movie “The Endless Summer” at the Egyptian Theatre on Friday May 1, at 8 pm. Filmmaker / narrator Bruce Brown follows two surfers as they take a surfing trip around the world, following the summer around our planet. According to Wikipedia, the film style is “one of the best known film themes in the surf movie genre.” The Endless Summer features a surf rock soundtrack by The Sandals, and is historic due to encouraging many surfers to “surf-and-travel.”
Wow – We had FUN at our First Annual Gala – Spring Into A Surfrider Summer! Thank you everyone who participated! Thank you Sponsors!!! You haven’t received a “Gala Report”, because our webmaster skipped off to Kyoto, Japan 3 days later. And guess what? There are Surfers in Japan!
