From the Projects to the Beach

Marin County surf camp hosts Sunnydale inner city crew

The past few years, Ian Glover and the rest of the crew at Marin County’s Big Dog Surf Camp (with help from San Francisco shaper Tim Gras and the TURF Community Development organization) have spent a day sharing the surf with kids from Sunnydale—one of San Francisco’s most violent housing projects. For most of these kids, it’s the only time they ever see the ocean up close, even though they live just over the hill from Ocean Beach. It’s a scientific certainty that watching this clip will make you feel a little better about humanity.
