A Case for Public Relations in the San Diego Surf Industry

By | Exercising, Mixte Community, Pure Adventure | No Comments

Surfing, in all its grace and simple glory, has gracefully and simply changed my life.

As a swimmer and a lifeguard, I’ve always harbored a deep appreciation for the ocean. I’ve helped people ages four through 70 learn to swim and overcome a fear of the water. I spend my days working with organizations that protect our precious coastline (San Diego Coastkeeper, Orange County Coastkeeper, Los Angeles WaterkeeperSurfrider Foundation) and I think the world could learn a lot from them – but that’s another blog post.

Mixte Goes Flying

“Why would I buy you a thing when I can buy you an adventure instead?” read my Christmas gift to Jamie this year. Groupon had convinced me that a 90-minute trapeze class for two in Escondido was a great investment (of course I was the other person invited to the class, that’s an unwritten rule anytime you give someone a gift “for two”). When we finally redeemed it, we had no idea what we had gotten ourselves in to.
