Surf Girls in Rincon, PR

This is from way back in late October/November when all the pros were in PR for the Rip Curl Pro 2010. However, the second clip has just been added to the Volcom site and I just had to share it with you all.

Can anyone recognize the popular bar these girls are enjoying their soda at??

Volunteer Event June 4th!

We're putting on a land clean up of sorts...with the understanding that everything eventually ends up in the ocean. Rincon needs some t.l.c. (Tender Loving Care) and it is our duty as residents of the town to take responsibility for the ridiculous amount of trash that is mounting up on the sides of roads, in river banks, and along the beaches. Everyone knows how beautiful Rincon is...lets try to keep it that way!

So, June 4th, Saturday morning, 8 am, rise and shine with the Surfrider crew and meet us at the balneario (public beach) for a meeting. We'll then move into teams and cover 4 main areas of Rincon that need our help:

1) behind Econo, the local grocery store
2) Around Edward's grocery store into the Stella Area, there is a watershed there, leading to the sea
3) Near Maria's beach right over the little bridge before heading up 413
4) The area on rt. 429 by the Rincon Ocean Villa

Any volunteers would be greatly appreciated. We have trash bags and trash picker-uppers! Please wear sneakers as I've noticed there is a lot of broken glass around lately.

Así, 04 de junio, la mañana del sábado, 8 de la mañana, levantarse y brillar con el equipo de Surfrider a conocernos en el balneario (playa pública) para una reunión.A continuación, voy a pasar a los equipos y cubrir cuatro áreas principales de Rincón que necesitan nuestra ayuda:

Detrás de Econo
Alrededor Edward's Co-Op en la barrio de Stella, es un hito que, lo que lleva al mar
3. Cerca de la playa de María la derecha por el puente poco antes de la partida hasta 413
4. Cerca la playa y carr. 429

Cualquier voluntarios sería muy apreciada. Tenemos bolsas de basura y parte superior de la basura-selector! Por favor, use zapatillas de deporte que he notado que hay un montón de cristales rotos alrededor de los últimos tiempos.

Local Volunteer Event

Hello All Surfrider enthusiasts!
This isn't a Surfrider event per say...but everyone loves a clean beach right?
I figured I'd post about other activists interested in the environment for others to get involved and perhaps feel inspired.

There's a beach clean up scheduled for May 21st, 8 am to noon, in Aguada, our neighbor beach town.
Gloves, water, bags and other items will be provided.

The area from Olajas Bar and Grill to Plazita de Cruz de Colón, along the beach and the street.

This clean up is organized and sponsored by
the Escuela de Bomba (Bomba Dancing School) de Mayaguez.

Come out and clean up a beautiful beach!
All the help is much appreciated.
