SURF MOVIE NIGHT XIII will feature the Farm League/Patagonia production “THE FISHERMAN’S SON” directed by Chris Malloy. When a visiting surfer gave a board he broke to a young boy in Punta de Lobos, Chile, he had no idea what he’d started. Young Ramon Navarro, the son of a subsistence fisherman, would rise to the top of the big wave surfing world. Traveling the globe in search of gigantic waves to ride, Navarro lived much of his life on the road –an exploratory trip to Antarctica, a perfect 100 at the Eddie at Waimea Bay, an impossible barrel on the biggest day ever at Cloudbreak–he was everywhere. But when his home break came under threat of development, Navarro couldn’t pass through his village tossing young unknowns his broken boards. He would preserve the waves so they might have them to ride.
Surfrider Foundation’s mission is the protection and enjoyment of oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network. The Eastern Long Island Chapter has been a strong advocate of public access and environmental preservation along our shoreline from Montauk Point to Moriches Inlet for over 14 years. Staffed entirely by a dedicated team of volunteers, the grass roots chapter has worked, and continues to work, with every level of government on resolving many important coastal issues. In addition, dozens of beach cleanups, educational programs, and dune plantings have been done with local students and community members.
BLUE WATER TASK FORCE WATER QUALITY MONITORING PROGRAM
Surf Movie Night supports our volunteer-run Blue Water Task Force (BWTF) water-testing program.
Since 2013, our chapter has been partnering with the Concerned Citizens of Montauk (CCOM) to test the water quality at ocean and bay beaches, creeks and storm water discharges in Montauk and Amagansett. Through the generosity of a grant from the Kate W. Cassidy Foundation, we have just expanded our monitoring program, and have starting sampling at Flying Point, Sagg Main, Georgica Pond and the third jetty.
The purpose of this water-testing program is to provide information on the cleanliness of our local waters and beaches and to build community awareness of the water pollution issues that exist. Recreational activities such as swimming, surfing, and fishing, and business interests such as commercial fishing and tourism all depend upon clean water and clean beaches. Visit the BWTF website before heading to the beach – Know Before You Go! http://www.surfrider.org/blue-water-task-force/chapter/37
The Surfrider Foundation Eastern Long Island Chapter relies entirely on volunteers to fulfill its mission of the protection and enjoyment of our local ocean, waves and beaches.

Surfrider Foundation’s volunteer water quality monitoring program update:Entering into its third year, the Concerned Citizens of Montauk (CCOM) in partnership with the Surfrider Foundation’s nationwide Blue Water Task Force water quality testing program, has been sampling Montauk and Amagansett water bodies for the bacteria enterococcus. Weekly, highly trained volunteers collect and test water samples from Ditch Plains, Lake Montauk and Fort Pond in Montauk and Fresh Pond in Amagansett then post the test results online on Surfrider’s Blue Water Task Force portal.During 2014, volunteers from 30 Blue Water Task Force labs processed more than 4,000 marine and fresh water samples collected from nearly 300 distinct sampling sites located across the country. The CCOM / Eastern Long Island Chapter joint Blue Water Task Force program processed 329 water tests in 2014 placing in the top three most prolific BWTF labs in 2014 – impressive results considering 2014 was only CCOM’s second year in the program. The Montauk-based lab also placed in the top 5 for recording a high bacteria rate of 22%, in other words 22% of all the samples collected failed to meet the health standard of <104 enterococci bacteria per 100 milliliters for a single sample.To review the complete 2014 report for all participating BWTF labs, please visit: http://www.surfrider.
