If this is as family as it looks, this is what the beach needs. I don’t see any of these kids holding beer cans. Good for Edgewater.

I attended the event this weekend and it was a terrific event for the whole family.It was well organized and a terrific asset for bay county.However,Tony who owns Mr Surfs Surfshop was very rude to participants and their families during the morning check in.I have spent a substantial amount of money with this business over the years.I WILL NOT purchase any more merchandise from them in the future.I understand that it is very stressful organizing an event of that magnitudeand I appreciate what he has done for the sports of skimming and surfing,but it never hurts to be nice and respectful.The other employess of Mr Surfs are extremely kind and generous.Tony would do himself and his business a favor by following their lead.

You’re not the only person that has told me Tony is very rude.
