Surrounded by Goodness
Sweetwater Surf Shop. Sweetwater Surf Shop is an awesome locally owned establishment in Wrightsville. Granted, most surf shop owners and employees are laid back and friendly but Sweetwater was exceptionally right on! First of all, the selection of clothes, boards, and assessories was excellent (great prices and sales to boot!). Secondly.......in a word........TONY! Shop Manager, Tony Butler, was the best! Knowing that we were participating in a local environmental event, he totally hooked my girl Courtney up! Tony and Sweetwater's act of kindness speaks volumes about their dedication and support to the community and our oceans. If you are in Wrightsville Beach definately check this shop out.
Indo Jax Surf School and Ocean's Cure, the event was being filmed as part of a documentary inspired by a local woman, Danielle, who has spent the last 30 days saving our Mother Ocean by picking up cigarette butts and other trash on the shores of Wrightsville Beach. Her project was selected as a winner in the Brit Filter GoodFilm contest. To date, Danielle and her family have saved our ocean from swallowing over 11,000 cigarette butts proving that everyone can make a difference. To follow Danielle story check out her blog at http://itstartswithme-danielle.blogspot.com/.
Could the night get any better? YES! To top the night off, I stopped at Starbucks to get Courtney a Hot Chocolate (no this was not raw!) and the dude at the Wrightsville Beach Starbucks hooked us up with free scones. It doesn't get much better than this.......................Love and Gratitude to Wrightsville Beach!
