More about me:
I am a longtime lover of the ocean. Recently, I've been working on a documentary about other Black folks and their love of the ocean. I am grateful that Shaun found our website and introduced me to this organization.

Congrats to the BSA on a great event. Hey Darrick let's meet up some time down at Ocean Beach and surf together...or rather you surf and I'll swim in it :)

Happy Holidays Darrick,
When I learn to surf, maybe one day, we can hook up and go to Hawaii, and get some pointers from Darrick, the real pro. Hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year. How is the documentary going with Black Folks and the Ocean?? Keep me posted. Take Care and God Bless Ya. Darrick

Hi Darrick,
Welcome to the site and hope you enjoy it as much as I do. We look forward to your sharing of your experiences via our forum and discussions. Since we have the same first name, I really look forward hearing from you in the future. By the way, I am much better at surfing the net, than I am on water. No balance what so ever. Take Care and God Bless You. Darrick aka dswimmerman
