April 2009

The Surfrider Foundation announced it will host the Ohana Day on April 19, 2009 at the Seal Beach Pier.

Ohana means “extended family”.  This activity is an Earth Day awareness celebration.   The foundation invites all to come for free surf lessons, free marine biology classes for kids, a free bodyboarding clinic, and a skateboarding demo – all courtesy of local merchants.

There will be a raffle to benefit the Huntington/Seal Beach Chapter of Surfrider Foundation (http://www.sbhbsurfrider.org).

This celebration runs from 9 am to 1 pm.


There were approximately 4,000 participants in the 35th running of the 5K/10K  in Seal Beach.  Everyone was a winner, including the Cancer Support Foundation.
