Dear friends, colleagues and supporters,
In just 3 weeks, on October 9th, Malibu will be dedicated as the very first World Surfing Reserve. There is a tremendous amount of momentum behind this effort, and we hope you will join us in person or, if not possible, then in spirit, for a day’s worth of great events in Malibu to celebrate this historic occasion, and taking proactive coastal protection of surfing areas to a new level. I’m attaching the graphic for the event, please forward on to your networks, anyone and everyone you think might be interested, as well as post to your web pages, blogs, etc. Here are the specifics on the day’s events:
