 Borrowing comedian Bob Hope’s signature song – Thanks for the Memory – SurfWriter Girls Sunny Magdaug and Patti Kishel want to thank everyone for another great year. And lots of memories!

It’s hard to believe that we’re already celebrating the Third Anniversary of our beach environmental and lifestyles blog SurfWriter Girls.

Since writing our first blog post on July 20, 2011, we’ve written 124 feature stories about the people, places, events, and organizations that are making a difference in the quality of life of our North Orange County beach communities.




We also write for local publications…


and are volunteer media consultants for the Surfrider Foundation, helping to promote its environmental goals of protecting the world’s oceans, waves and beaches.


Some of the highlights we’ve shared with you include stories about:

and we hope that we have created some good memories for you. We know how fortunate we are to be able to experience the joy and spirit of our beach communities and to share it with others.

Look for us wherever there’s something happening in and around Surf City and Seal Beach. SurfWriter Girls will be there with our cameras and notebooks getting the story for you!
