ADAPTATION ALIGNMENT – Doug and Chad discuss the challenges of institutionalizing adaptation planning into an existing organization. Chad shares how Surfrider is approaching this issue and how members can play a role in this process.

A SEA LEVEL RISE WIN - Doug and Chad discuss the challenges sea level rise poses to coastal habitats and the difficulty for organizations to define what a policy ‘victory’ is in relation to sea level rise.

SURFING AND ADAPTING – Chad shares some research on how sea level rise will impact favorite surf spots and his recommendations for the best books on surfing.
