Re: If you subscribe or support Surfline....

While I am not making any accusations, I found it interesting the the
Surfer Mag forum was shut down (denial of services perhaps) last night
until early this morning Pacific Coast time. When the Forum was
restored the thread (and photos of several Surfline 'VIPs') was
removed. The thread questioned the Surfline corporate practice of
taking over a remote surf break, reportedly by paying off the mayor of
the village and hiring local goons to provide 'security' under the guise
of contributing $20,000 to the community. The reported assault of
several surfers who were visiting from Oz, destruction of their
surfboards, etc., made for less than entertaining reading. If the
allegations and photo's that were posted are true then Surfline needs to
really look at their corporate ethics in my humble opinion. The board
of directors includes executives from the Surfrider Foundation and
well known surf industry soft goods companies, etc. Perhaps the
conduct should be addressed in a future board of director's meeting
(unless some of these executives were in attendance at the 'event' as
one of the VIP' guests).
