Come join the Surfrider Foundation’s Miami Chapter as they debut the official “Bimini to Miami Blue Water Challenge” documentary. The viewing will be held on Thursday, August 9th at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden (2000 Convention Center Drive) at 7 p.m.
The documentary will present the tale of Miami Watermen, Bill Whiddon and Thaddeus Foote, as they made history on June 9th by becoming the first to cross the Gulf Stream on stand-up paddleboards.
Completed in a little over 17 hours, the two men battled nature’s elements for approximately 60 plus miles in an effort to raise awareness for Surfrider Foundation’s Rise Above Plastics (RAP) Campaign. RAP aims to reduce plastics in the ocean.
Among the local ocean lovers, water sports enthusiasts and environmental activists, Grammy-nominated alternative folk artist Elsten Torres will also be attending the premier event.
We urge you to come support not only your local Surfrider Foundation team, but to come out and have a good time provided by the KonaBrewing Company. There’s no better way to Live Aloha than to encourage and welcome your local community.
Surfrider will also be launching the MyBeach pledge campaign. Designed to instill a sense of individual ownership and respect of our local Miami-Dade County beaches, we implore you… “Are you gonna take the pledge?”
