International Surfing Day Weekend

We had 60 attendees at Friday’s “Black Tie and Baggies” at Nichol’s Surf Cafe and we had 30 children learn how to surf at Saturday’s “EcoSurf Clinic” on the beach at Lighthouse Point Park.

On Friday, our Best Dressed Couple was Tiffany and Kevin Dirlam and the runners up were Leslie and Jake Sachs. On Saturday, after the lil groms spent some time on their boards (graciously provided by the Volusia Jr. Lifeguards) in the water, they were treated to an eco lesson from Chad Truxall, from the Marine Discovery Center. They learned about the animals that live in our waters and even got to see a live jellyfish, caught (and later released) that day!

Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible: the VOLUNTEERS!, Nichol’s Surf Cafe (Chuck and Alison!), Eric at Sweetwater Brewing, Barefoot Wine, Alaia Luna, Volusia Jr. Lifeguards, Chad Truxall, Grom Gear, and Quiet Flight of NSB.
