Surfrider Santa Barbara to ‘Paddle for Clean Waves’

Public invited to Saturday's 'fun raiser' at Leadbetter Beach

Surfrider Santa Barbara Chapter will host its fifth annual “Paddle for Clean Waves — We’re In It Together” from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16 at Leadbetter Beach in Santa Barbara.

The “fun raiser” is a free event for the ocean-loving public. Paddle out with paddlers in solidarity of preserving and protecting the world’s oceans.

All people-powered participants are invited to join the event to learn how to protect and preserve oceans and to support nonprofit groups working to keep waves clean, beaches open and accessible, and preserve coastal open space.

The event also will be raising funds to support Gulf Coast Surfrider chapters to clean and restore their local habitats and surf breaks.

» 11 a.m.: Event participant registration. Listen to singer-songwriter Claude Hopper.

» 11:30 a.m.: Guest speakers Das Williams, world champion surfer Shaun Tomson and others will address event participants.

» Noon: Paddle out, swim out, kayak out.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
