There are plenty of happenings in the Surf Community as the summer chugs along full speed ahead.  With so many things to choose from the only question is how to get it all in?

For those looking to help raise money and awareness for the fight against Autism there is the SEA PaddleNYC.  Stand-Up Paddlers will join friends and family to trek the waters around Manhattan.  With a distance of 28 miles each participant is taking up an awesome challenge for a great cause.  The Paddle will be taking place on August 13th.

On that same evening in Atlantic City the premier of The Dark Fall will be taking place at the House of Blues.  Tickets are available through Ticketmaster.  This is an awesome film about New Jersey Surfing and is a must see.

The iMatter Surf Camp for Children with Autism is taking place on August 14th in Westhampton NY.  This is such an awesome way to get people in touch with the ocean.

For folks in Central Jersey, or anyone willing to travel to compete, the Big Sea Day Surf Contest is taking place in Manasquan.  Entry forms can be found here.  There is a division for everyone, so if you want to get out and test your skills against your fellow surfer, do not delay.

Early reports indicate that we may have some swell on tap for all of these events too, so that will be a good thing.

In related competition news, The Garden State Grom Grudge Match waiting period opens on August 15th.  The event will take place in Seaside Park.  If you feel like you are an up-n-comer get your entry forms in, and get in the mix for the $1,500.00 in prize money that Smith Optics and others will be handing out to the big winner.

This is also a great time of year to look for some new gear.  Many of the local shops are running their sidewalk sales, so if you are in the market for a new pair of trunks or shades, this may be your time to pounce.

Thanks to everyone for checking in.  If you are like me we will try to get every last drop of fun out of this summer.  Make the most of it.
