The Perry Harvey Sr, Park Skate Bowl aka “Bro Bowl” was built in 1978 and is one of the world’s oldest and last remaining skateparks of the 70′s surf-style era. Our chapter was approached last Spring by the Skateboarding Heritage Foundation when it was being threatened to be demolished by the City of Tampa. We helped to create and share a petition that obtained over 2,300 signatures to help “Save the Bro Bowl.” This campaign was successful, as the “Bro Bowl” was recently listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Although it’s fate and ultimate location remains unknown at this time, we will continue to work with our surf/skate community in preservation efforts. Thank you for all of your support! http://www.skateboardingheritage.org
Lassing Park is a beautiful dog and family friendly beach on Tampa Bay in the Old Southeast Neighborhood of St. Petersburg. Kiteboarders also love it’s location and frequent onshore winds. The Suncoast Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation hosted a beach clean-up on Saturday November 23rd. We educated members of the neighborhood and their kids about the harmful impacts of single-use plastic consumption. In just one hour, we collected over 72 plastic straws, 58 plastic bottles & 196 plastic bottle caps! Our goal is to collect this data in one clean-up per month to help bring awareness to this issue. Many thanks to all our volunteers, members and friends from the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission & Collegiate Kiteboarding Association!
Mark your calendars and check back for further details!
This amazing family-friendly event features Cory Lopez signing autographs, FREE food & drinks and product giveaways plus a RAFFLE to benefit the SURFRIDER FOUNDATION!
Bring a toy or $5 donation for Santas Angels, live music and food!
