Tonight I had an interesting dyadic encounter with one of Nova Scotia's finer citizens; a fella in a black truck rolled up to Lawrencetown point and started filling up a large container with beach rocks. Noting that erosion is an ongoing struggle in our community, where the road is starting to wash out in the big winter storms more and more often, and some have spent a lot of money trying to prevent this from happening in their backyards. I decided in my infinite wisdom to openly shoot a video on my iPhone of this not-so-gentleman in the act, and of course as luck would have it he saw me, and wasn't too stoked.
He asked if I was a cop, I said no, then he told me he was himself a cop, I said great! He must have permission from the minister of environment to remove the rocks! He asked if i wanted a better picture, I said I think I got a couple good ones, and that I was ok, but thanks. He sped off up and over the hill, to only come ripping back down less than a few minutes after. He pulls in, blocks my car, gets out and approaches me looking pretty cray! As I'm getting suited up to go out for a surf standing under my hatchback. He declares that he is going to get a couple pictures of me too! (probably because secretly he thinks I'm super handsome) and then starts closing the hatchback on my head repeatedly while I'm under it (weird). He then takes off back to his truck and speeds off again telling me knows where I live etc etc..
At this point, the craziness is a little more than I'm interested in, and I call the police to at least go have a chat with the guy. In the end, the rocks were returned, and nobody was hurt or charged, but keep an eye out for this guy, he seems cray cray, and he lives in our community. ... See MoreSee Less
SANS is hosting our annual Why Can't We All Get a Longboard Comp this August. The event will be held at Martinique with the waiting period running on the 9th, 10th, 16th and 17th of August. Let's hope that we get some sick little waves for it with sunshine! Registration will open a week prior to the start of the contest, closing 24 hours before the start. We should be able to slot in some groms on the day of too.
Hello surf crew... We are looking for more surfers to volunteer in the water with the participants on September 20th for the Life Rolls On event. Attached is the online volunteer application form if you are interested in getting involved. Surfer volunteers are vital for the success and safety of this event as we/you are all competent and 'in-tune' with how waves and the ocean work. You all possess a great skill set to help ensure the participants have a successful and safe experience. Sign up if you have any interest! (When you hit the link, you may have to scroll down when you get to the event page to complete the volunteer registration form. Register as a shallow or deep water volunteer). Thanks.... ...
