The SFLB Chapter is announcing nominations for Executive Committee (EC) members to lead the chapter in its efforts to protect and enjoy our ocean, waves, and beaches through activism. New EC members will help direct the chapter educate the local community (including City Hall) about the Breakwater, Ocean Friendly Gardens, Rise Above Plastics, and other Surfrider Foundation initiatives. Wonder if you’re eligible? Here’s the skinny:
If you want to join the Long Beach Chapter Executive Committee, send your name to Robert Palmer (firstname.lastname@example.org) by November 23. To simplify the paperwork on our end, there will be no last minute write-ins on the ballot. For Surfrider members, we will have food and drinks so come by to vote, and mingle with the fellow Surfrider members!
The Long Beach Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation is holding a show and tell event to memorialize the spectacular surfing that took place on August 26 – 28, 2014.

Come get your “Surf Long Beach” stickers and buy a Surfrider t-shirt to support the Sink the Breakwater campaign.
When: Sunday September 28, 11AM – 1PM
Where: Art Theater , Long Beach
Hurricane Marie broke sections of the Middle Breakwater. This is not the Long Beach Breakwater, it’s the one in front of the Port of Long Beach. This is a good explanation for why Pier T in the Port of Long Beach was shut down during the swell. Here’s a shot of the missing armor stone from the Port side looking seaward.
August 27 and 28, 2014…It was like a spontaneous festival with mother nature in charge.
The folks at Seventh Wave Surf Shop scored some surfable waves in Long Beach during the January 25th storm. Here’s an exerpt:
We drove onto the beach at 7:30 am the next day without a soul in sight on the beach or in the water. Claremont Street on the Long Beach Peninsula woke up from her long slumber. She was breaking, and it was beautiful out! The waves weren’t epic with big barrels or long tasty lines, but they were epic because they were in Long Beach and were rideable. I was so amped for the inconsistent short rides just off the sand….but if you look at the photos….those small waves show so much potential!!!! The last time in recent memory that there were surfable waves in Long Beach was back in 2010. We had been waiting a long time. I sent out a quick post so friends could come down and share the stoke. Then Deb, Sierra Garcia and I suited up. (We sponsor Sierra. She surfs for Millikan High. NSSA and CCSA. Charger, good student, great kid. Tamara Garcia, Sierra’s mother, captured the images of this event. She is a great mom and shop supporter! Yay Millikan!)
