Two Coasts: One Ocean – East Meets West Videos Part 1

The Surfrider Foundation, a non-profit environmental organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches will kick off a national effort to celebrate its network of coastal activists with two fundraising events, Two Coasts: One Ocean, in Montauk and Malibu on August 8th and September 19th, respectively.

The Two Coasts: One Ocean events will be co-hosted by key figures in the ocean science and preservation communities of each locale. While Montauk is literally close to home for us, we’re not here to perpetuate East Coast versus West Coast beef so we’re commemorating the occasions by featuring videos from select hosts celebrating both coasts. We’ll be bringing you two videos a day (one representing East and one representing West) every day until the big event this Saturday. We dug through the crates (interwebs) to bring you some oldies but goodies that best highlight the multi-faceted differences and similarities of each coast.

To kick things off we’ve got Beastie Boy Mike D talking about relocating to Cali from NY and the best of both:

In the East Coast corner, we have Montauk’s own Quincy Davis waxing on about the perks of the off-season:
