Saturday at 8am Blue Mountain Surf will be volunteering along with the Surfrider Foundation Emerald Coast Chapter for a beach cleanup in the Santa Rosa Beach area. More info here. Contact us if you want to participate.
Then head to the YOLO Race and Celebration. Details here.
You can listen to Mike Sturdivant’s public service announcement here.
On June 26, 2009, children from Pensacola, Niceville, Destin, and Santa Rosa Beach, descended upon Blue Mountain Beach for the” Blue Mountain Surf School”. The school is full day educational program that teaches beach and marine conservation…and of course surfing! Sign up for the July 17 surf school here.
Items to Bring: Each student should bring a bathing suit and sunscreen.
You can view a slideshow from our last Surf School here.
The program is open to boys and girls who are good swimmers and love the beach. Designed to be way more than just a surfing lesson, your child will learn how waves are formed, what turtles eat, how to spot a rip-current and more….all while having a blast at the beach ! The curriculum for each subject has been specifically created for SURF SCHOOL. The primary goals of SURF SCHOOL are to:
Introduce children to the healthy and confidence inspiring sport of surfing.
Foster a sense of personal stewardship regarding beach and marine resource management.
Provide a safe and exciting opportunity for learning and creative expression.
Explore the broad range of occupations and academic interests related to surfing, beach management, and the coastal community.
Introduce aspects of historical, as well as, modern-day surf culture.
Promote friendly, environmentally responsible, coastal community living.
With the exception of severe weather, this event will run rain-or-shine. In the event of complete calm seas, stand up paddle boarding may be substituted for surfing instruction. In the unlikely event of dangerous seas, water activity may be canceled while land based activities proceed. In this case, alternative dates for group lessons will be offered and/or discounted rate individual lessons offered.
The Blue Mountain Surf School is almost in session and school has never been more fun!Â A limited number of Blue Mountain Surf School items are available for purchase.Â If you know that your young surfer will hit the waves again and again, consider these basic items to make their experience comfortable.Â These are the same items we will use during the school.
Use our contact page to reserve your items. Check back soon for online ordering.
“Surf’s Cool!”Â Rashguards ($25)
These rashguards protect your belly from abrasion caused by laying on the wax (and sand) on the deck of a surfboard! They also provide excellent sun protection (UPF 50+). The light color reflects more sun. When wet, a gentle sea breeze adds a cooling effect.Â Super comfy for all day play!
“Surf’s Cool!”Â Wetsuits ($45):
We searched high and low for a great kids wetsuit. These suits are high quality neoprene and custom made for our school! Little bodies canÂ chill quickly so, kids need extra thermal protection in order to keep having fun for hours. The superior design of these suits makes them better than the ones you’ll find elsewhere:
The no sleeve, “overall” shape means little arms can move freely and stay strong longer!
Over the shoulder Velcro closure means easy entry and exit and no zipper to rub, stick or break!
Unique closure allows the suit to grow with your child or to be shared between kids several inches taller or shorter!
One suit can be used for several seasons.Â Way cheaper than buying new suits after each growth spurt!
To celebrate the new year, Studio b is hosting a photo forum of camera phone shots! Yes, camera phone shots! No need for high-tech cameras, you can be “Joe the plumber” or an ace photographer and enter!
There are only two rules:
Rule#1: It must be shot from a camera phone.
Rule #2: It must be shot after the clock strikes midnight on January 1st, 2009 to the following midnight (so it’s your first day of 2009). Make it a resolution you can keep!
Just email your images to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 2nd. You will be included in an online gallery of all the images from all around the globe!
It’s time to get creative! Start 2009 with a click! Spread the word! Pass it on! Tell all of your friends! All ages and phones are welcome! Be sure to include your name, age, where you’re from, type of phone, and caption. All images will be online soon at www.studiobthebeach.com.
