The north winds blow, but Surfrider Shindig scheduled to rock.

Woohoo! Spread the word. Get on your cell like you’re calling your buddy to say XXXXXXX is going off!

The return of Surfrider Foundation’s Humboldt chapter officially begins Friday, Oct. 10 with a party at the Wharfinger Building from 6 to 9 p.m. Free beer! Snacks! Surf flicks! Music provided, appropriately enough, by Ukesperience, Humboldt’s greatest ukulele band. Membership in Surfrider encouraged, but not required – membership forms will be available for those interested. Everyone who signs up gets a free raffle ticket and discounted T-shirt featuring the awesome new Humboldt logo by Matt O’Brien.

Note the amazing amount of killer raffle items!
