There's a Surf Contest at Tower 26 this weekend and it is going to be a really fun, local event. Our organizer Kevin has put his hard work and heart into it for the second year in a row. Thanks Kevin!
I got two reusable water coolers today so that we won't be handing out bottled water, even though I am sure we could have gotten some donated. The picture above, and the hundreds of others I have from other cleanup nights, is why Kevin and I decided to let The Daily Ocean sponsor the reusable water portion of this weekend's craft service. Come on down, and grab your reusable water bottle along with your board shorts and towel when you do!

We also won't be serving the reusable water out of any of these. 

Friday morning is a beach cleanup. Here's the events Facebook page for all the details!


  1. Wow! Sarah! Look at all you have done. Fabulous! the other best man

  2. Great post Sara, thank you. This incredible project you have been working on is really an education to me and a great tool to help people think about and understand how we are affecting our environment. Thank you for helping our local surf contest have a lower environmental impact.
