Anyone who has ever been to Oahu's North Shore will agree that it's not ruined. It still has a "country" feel to it. The primary reason for this is that a few people worked to Keep country "country"... for more than two decades. People like Peter Cole, Larry McElheny and Jeff Johnson are our heros.

We should acknowledge that we all benefit, sometimes greatly, because of the tireless work that a few people like them have done to preserve special places.

That same story is happening on the northern elements of California's Southern coast.

Twenty men have been the core of a group that has been fighting for twenty years to save twenty miles of Southern California coast. I won't restate what is in the Kickstarter trailer below, give it a watch.

The stunning news is that this campaign was just fully funded. Huge thanks to all that contributed to make that happen. Massive kudos to everyone that had fingerprints on this project. It's clear to me that one of the best ways to preserve a place as pristine as the Gaviota Coast is to take that story to them.

These twenty people are the essence of why Surfrider exists.
