Sunshine Freestyle Sport is looking forward to our 37th Annual Surfabout in June 2017, but the cost of staging this classic family surfing event exceed what Sunshine's owners, Rich and Robert, can absorb this year. So we're reaching out to our community to help make this authentic, original Monterey County event happen once again. We've started a GoFundMe page and ask for our awesome family members to contribute what you can. Every dollar donated will be used directly and only for the contest. If we don't receive ample funds and have to cancel the contest, we will reimburse everyone who has donated.

This year's event is scheduled for June 3 and 4, 2017. Our timeline for this is to be completely funded by the end of April. Please consider supporting this soulful community event and help us reach our $7,500 fundraising goal.

The Sunshine Freestyle Surfabout is Monterey County’s only annual surfing competition. Initially founded by then-surf shop owner Brad Johnson and his friend Tom Knight, the Surfabout is open only to county residents who want to participate in its men and women’s surfing, longboarding, bodyboarding, and distance paddling competitions.

It is with mixed feelings that Bamboo Reef Scuba Dive Shop in Monterey announces that Keith McNutt is stepping down as manager. Keith has managed the Lighthouse Avenue shop for 27 years and has a loyal following.

Bamboo Reef Monterey has a high reputation in the tech diving community because of the quality of the gas mixtures prepared for their tanks. This is primarily due to Keith's high standards. Keith has instilled in his staff the importance of customer service, quality, and safety, and under his leadership Bamboo Reef Monterey was once again voted the best dive shop in Monterey for 2016. But Keith is not leaving Bamboo Reef yet! He will be around to help out with the transition and still plans to lead some tours and teach some classes.

Bamboo Reef in Monterey is excited to announce that Adam Lester has accepted the position as manager. Adam is a Monterey native and has been with Bamboo Reef for 6 years. Adam recently received his instructor credentials and has been leading tours and now helping new divers explore and learn to dive in Monterey. Adam has worked closely with Keith and has been the person to go to in Keith's absence.

Bamboo Reef wishes Keith all the best as he and his wife, Carol, start their new adventure, and we wish Adam success in his new endeavor. We will be hosting an event at Bamboo Reef on Friday, April 21, 6pm-8pm, where both of our stars will be present. Come by and thank Keith for all he has done for the diving community and welcome Adam in his new role.
