Long Distance Surfers

Posted by on Apr 30, 2011 in Surfing in Southern California | 0 comments

I’m looking for any of you surfers out there that don’t live on a beach or just blocks from a beach that would love to tell there story on my site. I have met many surfers from the desert and mountain’s and other places that, for whatever reason live there but still surf. If you would like to tell your story of what you go through and how far you travel to catch some waves because you just flat love to surf, then email me and I will try to post it here so you can share with others in your same situation, and the ones that do live at the beach can appreciate your love for surfing. You can use the contact page or email me at anthony.surfingsocal@gmail.com. I hope to hear from some of you! Also if you have any photos from a recent trip and would like to share send them along.

Sting Ray Stings

Posted by on Apr 27, 2011 in Surfing in Southern California | 0 comments

Well I guess it’s getting to that time of year again when I hear of people getting stung by ray’s. They say the best way to not get stung is to do the “sting ray shuffle”. That is shuffle your feet on the sand so as to not step on the ray.I know getting stung hurt’s like hell and below I have added some hint’s that should help. by the way if you can( of Age) soak your foot in very hot water while drinking Jack Daniels on the rocks, boy you would be surprised at how fast the pain goes away( just kidding) , I know it’s no laughing matter.

Soak the affected limb in the hottest water tolerable for at least an hour. Other sources of heat such as a high power spotlight, engine manifold covered with a damp towel or hot car hood covered with a damp towel can also be used with caution. An instant hot pack like the kind used in glove warmers may be a good thing to keep on hand in your first aid kit when venturing into stingray territory. An open flame of any kind is probably to dangerous too use due to risk of burning the skin but may be considered if great care is taken to avoid burning and nothing else is available. Because stingray venoms are composed of heat-labile proteins, doing this will alter the tertiary structure of the polypeptide protein molecule by denaturing and thereby deactivating the poison. Ultimately this means that the venom will have less effect. Not only does the hot water help with the venom, but at the same time it will significantly reduce the amount of pain the victim is experiencing. Beach lifeguards sometimes keep buckets of hot water around the station on busy summer days – you could ask to use it. The venom will often become gel or jelly-like and ooze from the open wound–this is desired.

It probably wouldn’t hurt to go see a doctor to make sure the barb is out and especially if you have a large cut that might need stitches.

Be safe and have fun!

Blue Mountain Soap

Posted by on Apr 22, 2011 in Just cool stuff | 0 comments

I wanted to tell all of you out there about a really great product that is not only good for you but good for our ocean. This maybe geared more toward all you Wahine’s out there but guy’s you’ll like it too I promise. I am the kind of guy that used to use whatever was cheap because soap just wasn’t that important as long as it worked. When I found out what some of that soap had in it, I’m not sure if it wasn’t worse than what I was washing off and I know it was bad for our ocean. I started using the Blue Mountain Soap a while ago and man, it’s good stuff. It actually smells like what it’s supposed to not “Ocean Breeze” that never smelled like any ocean I’ve been to. If you really care about the health of our ocean and want to know more about this great product then click on the link on the left and check them out, you won’t be sorry. Remember it’s all “organic” and that is good for all of us.
