Magical Times with Fred Van Dyke

Posted on Apr 5, 2008 by PPSC in Uncategorized. Comments Off on Magical Times with Fred Van Dyke

By Jay Jansson

Over the past two weeks Peggy and I have had the pleasure to spend quality time with Fred Van Dyke and his lovely wife Joan Marie. We’ve shared dinner and good times with them as well as Joan’s sister, Carol Florence and her significant other, Michael Cripes.

One of our evenings was spent at the San Luis Obispo Film Festival, which was honoring 95 year old Bud Browne for his pioneer contributions to surf film making. Fred along with Gerry Lopez, Peter Cole, Bruce Brown, Linda Benson, Jack McCoy, Joel Tudor and other surf celebrities were there to honor Bud Browne for his contributions to the sport and lifestyle that we love so much.

Browne’s “Surfing The 50’s” movie was shown to a full and hooting house at the Fremont Theatre in downtown San Luis Obispo. Peggy …

Altered Oceans

Posted on Aug 25, 2006 by PPSC in Uncategorized. Comments Off on Altered Oceans

The Los Angeles Times has published an enlightening five part series of articles called Altered Oceans, which highlights the crisis in our oceans.  Altered Oceans brings to light the “distress signals from an unhealthy ocean”: the harm of urban runoff, toxic algae, drifting debris and growing seawater acidity. This poignant series underscores why organizations such as Surfrider Foundation exist and why they’ve been working for over 22 years to help protect and preserve the oceans, waves and beaches that we all love.

Building a sustainable surfboard

As a regular reader of Treehugger.com, I got a kick out of a recent post about efforts to build surfboards out of sustainable materials.  Here’s a quote: “The ultimate goal [of the EcoFoil by OceanGreen] is to produce custom surfboards that are 100% bio-derived, that is, made entirely from natural materials. With the EcoFoil they’re sure getting close. Instead of polyurethane or
polystyrene blanks (core), they use hollow balsa wood from FSC certified Nicaraguan forests. These handcrafted blanks are purchased under fair trade arrangements for the final shaping in
Cornwall, England. Fibreglass is avoided with the application of an organically grown hemp  cloth ‘skin’. This has about 10% of the embodied CO2 emissions of the fibreglass. Research is still underway to find an appropriate sustainable resin to bind the package. Aside from their standard hemp covered models they offer three EcoFoil balsa boards, beginning with a …
