‘Lost Prophets’ at Greenhouse, Wednesday, 6 p.m. – BENEFIT


Wednesday, Oct. 21, 6 p.m.: Greenhouse Boardshop and Juice Bar is hosting a movie premiere of “Lost Prophets,” a film by Nat Apffel. “Lost Prophets” is an artistically done movie about the non-competitive side of surfing – the side that uses surfing for personal growth and enjoyment, the side of surfing that most of us can relate to.

Bring lawn chairs and blankets for the event. If it rains, we will move inside the surf shop.

The showing takes place in the parking lot of Greenhouse Boardshop and Juice Bar and Ritas. Or inside if it rains!

Benefit for Humboldt Surfrider!

From the T-S: First flush has arrived

The Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services’ Public Health Branch issued a health warning Wednesday urging recreational users to avoid contact with the creeks, rivers and ocean waters near Mad River, Clam, Luffenholtz and Old Home beaches. The warning came after water tests at all four beaches showed levels of enterococcus faecalis exceeding state health standards. At Luffenholtz Beach, the state standards for E. coli was also exceeded.

Whole story here.

Humboldt Baykeeper’s Pete Nichols, quoted in the T-S story, also discussed this with Mike Dronkers yesterday on KHUM’s Coastal Currents, which will be available here.
