Have you heard about Chatroulette? The new website that pairs random strangers from all over the world for webcam-based conversations? The future is now! Cyberspace is evolving insanely fast. But what if you could click on a miraculous link and suddenly be on the beach at this very moment? Imagine the sound of waves crashing against the shore as salty green water rolls over your bare feet. Surfing the Net is addictive and potentially unhealthy. Celebrate the real deal when Board Up Miami takes over Miami Marine Stadium this Friday and Saturday.
Surfing, skateboarding, bikini, and wake-boarding contests will be open to pros and amateurs alike. There will also be live music by Streetkind, Mixed Culture, and the Live!! Music School, as well as a guest appearance by the world's best BMXer, Mike Spinner. Register and compete, or just cheer for your homey. Turn off the computer and check out the outside world for a change.
Fri., April 9, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sat., April 10, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., 2010
