I love it. I have surfed all over Hawaii and
yet around here are so many great spots to choose
from that I have made the Central Coast of
California my home. And the crowds around here
are not bad at all and over all everyone is in a
good and sharing mood! I've been surfing all
of my life. This picture was taken of me at
the pier in Pismo Beach a very easy spot. A
great place to learn. I'm currently teaching
my daughter how to surf. She loves it.
It makes her stronger, a better swimmer and brings
her closer to nature and gives her a much bigger
respect for the ocean.
If you are along the Central Coast a great surf shop
to check out is in Shell Beach which happens to be
near Spyglass surf break. They are very
friendly there and informative and can get you set
up with a surf lesson.

A lot of commonly used household items can take
years to decompose?
of our pollution problems are really problems of
misplaced resources. It may be something as simple
as a recyclable can or bottle carelessly tossed on a
beach, or as complex as a sewage outfall dumping
organic waste that could be processed into
fertilizer, or an industrial plant discharging
materials that could be recaptured and reused in the
manufacturing process. In each case changes in our
attitude could eliminate the problem. By instilling
the simple message that the proper place for a can
or bottle is in the recycling bin and not on our
beaches, parks, and streets, we point the way to
solving the bigger problems we face.
Day 3rd Saturday
of September is the premier volunteer
event focused on the marine environment in the
country. On this day, 50,000 volunteers turn out to
over 700 cleanup sites statewide to conduct what has
been hailed by the Guinness Book of World Records as
"the largest garbage collection" (1993). Since the
program started in 1985, over 750,000 Californians
have removed more than 12 million pounds of debris
from our state's shorelines and coast. When combined
with the International Coastal Cleanup, organized by
The Ocean Conservancy and taking place on the
same day, California Coastal Cleanup Day becomes
part of one of the largest volunteer events of the
year. You can even help save the oceans by
