Help the Ocean Beach Bulletin to Show Us Your Quiver
For the last several months, I have been running the Show Us Your Quiver column here at the Ocean Beach Bulletin, and I have to say, it’s been a blast. I’m a pretty chatty, curious person by nature, and the column has been a great venue for me to learn from other Ocean Beach surfers about the many diverse ways that people ride waves here in San Francisco.
If you’ve ever read one of these columns and thought about writing one yourself, this is your chance to do it.
We’ve connected with so many interesting surfers, from Lewis Samuels to Pete Reich to Stanton Otero, largely because they reached out to us about wanting to share their quiver. That, or else a friend did on their behalf. A big part of what has made the quiver profile successful has been the feedback and interaction with the surf community.
Now I’m hoping to increase that involvement even further, to see if anyone is interested in helping to actually conduct the quiver profiles themselves. I’ll be away traveling through the second half of the summer, and we’d love to keep this column alive while I’m gone. We’re hoping that there is someone out there who would be interested in filling in during that time. All it takes is a camera, an audio recording device (like your smartphone), and a healthy dose of curiosity, and you’ll help to sustain a popular feature here at the Ocean Beach Bulletin. You don’t even have to know much about surfing. Of course, we’ll help get you familiar with the mechanics of everything, and will even help to put you in touch with potential profile subjects.
If you’re interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information and some links to your writing if you have them, and we’ll be back in touch about getting you set up. Thanks a lot for considering, and for helping us to continue to provide interesting neighborhood coverage to San Francisco’s western edge.
