Extreme Kindness

There is method to my madness!

If you are a repeat viewer of extremekindness.com, or more specifically my blog, you may notice seemingly disparate posts thinly loosely tied together by a thread of kindness. They may seem random, however, they are all part of a master plan to put surfing pictures on the Internet! Ha Ha Ha! Yes, I’ve been scheming for months to find a way to make it all fit and fulfill my dream to make surfing a mandatory part of my work here at the Extreme Kindness. I’m getting there!

A couple of weeks ago you may have noticed a “Service Wipeout” post on the blog. The wipeout occurred while doing a beach cleanup with Surfrider Victoria, (of which I am a member of the executive team) Continuing on that theme I’d like to draw your attention to an event that epitomizes the spirit of both “Kindness in Sport” and putting “Passion into Action”

The Surfrider Clean Water Classic

Last weekend we ventured south to Westport Washington with funkloving crew of Canadians to compete in this Pro/Am surf contest designed to raise money for local Surfrider chapters. The competitors’ entry fee includes a year’s membership to Surfrider, (a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s oceans, waves and beaches for all people, through conservation, activism, research and education) and entry into the contest. The weekend is filled with great events, amazing music, good vibes and epitomizes the spirit of having fun while making a difference. This is activism that is pretty easy to connect with. The community of Westport is always accommodating and even the hardest of locals pleasantly tolerate the flocks of imported surfers for the weekend. There are steadfast volunteers who consistently do all that is necessary to make the event run smoothly through sideways rain and blazing sun.

Basically put, the event is awesome. It perfectly suits it’s purpose. It creates awareness, cleans the beach and promotes positive connection between surfers on the northwest coast. If you know of an event that perfectly captures the spirit of kindness on many different levels please post it.

Enjoy the pictures. More to come (All photos taken by that same radical bro who took our cover shot for “A Call to Arms”, the one and only Dave Aharonian!)
