The time has come. We’re finally giving female surfers the love they deserve in a brand-new, all-girls magazine, SALTED. The mag, created by the editors of SURFER Magazine, features the best female surfers on the planet, trips to the most idyllic locales, profiles, interviews, history, fashion features, and more. It’s is a much-overdue homage to women’s surfing, all made with the quality, authenticity, and top-notch imagery you’ve come to expect from SURFER.
Hitting newsstands August 14, SALTED is nearly 100 pages of uninterrupted female surf content in an oversized, glossy format. Find it at your local surf shop or bookstore. The digital version will also be available on the Apple Newsstand beginning August 6.

A zombie infestation has broken out beyond the halls of the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con at nearby Petco Park and horror fans are invited to see if they can survive it. The experience is called The Walking Dead Escape, named for the popular comic book (and subsequent AMC TV series) “The Walking Dead.” In celebration of the comic’s 100th issue, participants can immerse themselves in what’s both an exhaustive and exhausting adventure that puts survival skills to the test.
The Walking Dead Escape not only requires a love for all things zombie, but also the stamina to make it through a grueling obstacle course while avoiding each walker’s touch and infection. Much like a real zombie apocalypse might be, this course is no easy task. Those who take on the challenge can expect commotion, panic, and startles. Moreover, survivors are expected to run, climb, slide, jump, dodge, duck, crawl nearly non-stop for at least 20-30 minutes. It may sound like a lot to expect out of paying participants – and it is – but as soon as the first zombie breaks loose and begins its hunt, survival instincts kick in and there’s no looking back.
The free event put on by the HB Chamber of Commerce is a vendor showcase of goods and services. A good place to learn a lot about the latest in green technology. An important element for anyone in California and especially those in Huntington Beach.
After all, the city is leading the country in environmental issues and sustainability.
There are coastal wetlands with miles of protected lands for birds, fish, and all the large mammals that feed on them (dolphins, seals).
There is the recycling rate that was best in the State at 71% up from 45% in 1995. The local waste company, Rainbow Recycling, will be at the Expo.
If you’ve been down to City Hall or Central Library then you’ve seen the solar panels in the parking lot. These panels are expected to turn 40% of building energy use to solar. Several solar companies will be at the event.
Finally, there is the contentious plastic bag ban on all single use bags. The city council is largely split on this issue and so are the residents, but it is likely to pass.
That is not to say that we don’t have our issues. In a recent post, I explored the surfboard industry and found out that surfboards are dirty. I mean super toxic and not at all recyclable; something Surf City can’t ignore.
