Not All Doom and Gloom! Good News from Washington

News from Washington

Here it is: A study that proves legislation can get things done!  It’s a great example of what can be done if we put our minds to it, and this news of change coming from Washington D.C., the nation's capital, makes it that much more impressive. This was as simple as putting a five cent fee on bags in Washington D.C.  What I really liked is the small print down the bottom: 1.9 million raised from the 5 cents per bag went to restoring a local watershed.  This is proof that big things can come from small change. On the back of Surfriders International Surfers Day, this is really great to hear. Is it too much to ask in the future that I don’t see any rubbish on the beach at a beach cleanup?  Stoked.

Hand slyde

The leash works amazing i won't go out without my leash on....

Bula hand board

This handboard is exactly what I was looking for. The size and craftsmanship is fantastic! I have gotten some great rides with this board. Super fun.

Ready for the Senior Tour

I received my Slyde Phish just before 2 weeks of gloomy weather. Now that I’ve had a chance to road test it, I can’t wait to get back in the water.

Growing up in Long Island NY, body surfing was my first wave gliding experience. Typically we would drive straight to shore so surfing the diagonal has been a learning curve.

I look forward to many great sets this summer.

So much fun!

These little boards are amazing! We bought a couple to bring with us to Hawaii and had a blast.. super easy to travel with, just fit right in my backpack. Made riding the waves so much fun and worked just as good as a full sized boogie board one of my friends had. Highly recommended. Can’t wait to try it out again!

Love my Bula!

I recently been spending a lot of time on the North Shore of Oahu, and there’s nothing better than the Bula for bigger more intense surf. Too much fun brah! Mahalo nui loa!
