Final #RockWaterRelay Reminders

The Surfrider Foundation RockWaterRelay 2015 race is Saturday! A couple reminders before the race;

1. It will be hot, so please plan accordingly. Stay hydrated and might we suggest sunscreen. For hydration on the course, we will have some water at the stations and some paper cups. You are encouraged to bring your own cold water and re-usable water bottles along the course for your team.

2. Race t-shirt pick up and check-in starts at 8:30 at the first stop. The parking for the start near the Honda Center is in the adjacent office building parking. There will be signs to the start which is on the trail near the tables and open space. The race will start at 9 am. Each team is responsible for getting each runner to their stop. Use the map, also available on our website, and plan your route of travel.

3. Finish Line. Talk to the ranger at the Huntington State Beach and note you are with RockWater to get entry and park to see your last runner finish. We will have food from Newport Beach Rib Company, Cabo Chips, and other post-race snacks from Trader Joes. Please remember your cold refreshments to keep hydrated.

4. There will be volunteers, special thanks to HDX fit + shop3thirty,   supporting the race and cleaning-up the areas surrounding our race.  Please keep the course clean of your own trash, and pick up for others along the way. Remember to have fun, take pictures and share stories. The hashtag on Social media for the event is #RockWaterRelay. Our instagram is @SurfriderNewportBeach and our Twitter is @SurfriderNB.

Damnation Movie Screening at The Camp

Join us for a viewing of DamNation.

Wednesday December 10 at 6PM

Patagonia/SEED-People’s Market at The Camp. Showing will be at ‘The Treehouse’ on the rooftop. Enter up the stairs past the yoga studio.

RSVP here

This powerful film odyssey across America explores the sea change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. Dam removal has moved beyond the fictional Monkey Wrench Gang to go mainstream. Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access. DamNation’s majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries move through rivers and landscapes altered by dams, but also through a metamorphosis in values, from conquest of the natural world to knowing ourselves as part of nature.
