If you're reading this blog, chances are you have a thing for the Ocean.

Whether you're a weekend rider, on daily dawn patrol, or surf the web, the ocean brings you happiness on some level.  It seems we are not alone in that thinking and most if not all our followers feel the same way about the ocean and all of them want to make a difference in how the ocean is treated this 2016 

Lets face it, currently we kinda use it as our own personal dumping ground and if we want to float happily into 2017 and beyond it might be a good idea to start looking at ways we can start to treat our most valuable resource a little better in 2016. Everybody say yeah!!! Oh and by the way if the Scientists are to be believed we don't really have a choice on the matter. Looking to make a difference? Try Surfrider Foundation to hear about the next beach cleanup close to you!

Read below some awesome guys and Gals who are promising a change in how they do things   

So let's make a pact to make the Ocean
Crazy Happy Stoked in 2016!
