We're celebrating this Saturday, August 21, 2010. We realize this may be tough for some surfers since it's the same day as the Tsunami competition, so we're gonna have just have a short little drop in thingie from 1PM SLT to 6PM SLT (yeah, that's right.. 5 hours). SLavE Girls will kick things off and will be followed by a couple of great DJ's.

I hope ya'll can make it. I'd love for you to meet Tanya. If you've already met her, I'd still love to see you on this special day for me…… Seriously… ;-)
