TRIBUTE TO EDDIE, LONG TIME SUNSET SURFER
A long time Sunset surfer has passed on. Eddie Ramey, age 53, passed away of cancer last week. Eddie was part of the old 70s Sunset Point crew, along with myself -- Mark Jojola -- and Merle Marquez, Everette McGrath, Dave Dedmaras, Brian Punch, Danny Omara and others. I have known Eddie since 1972. He always had a smile on his face and talked in a low tone. His bright red hair and slight build were easy to spot. He was always a good friend. I can’t ever remember him getting mad at anyone. If someone dropped in on him, he would just shrug it off and get another wave. In the last few years he was the only one of the old crew I ever saw. Eddie was my friend and I will miss him. There will be a paddle out for him in couple of weeks and I will let all know. --Mark Jojola

MALIBU SEPTIC TANKS BANNED
The Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board agreed late Thursday to ban septic systems in portions of central and eastern Malibu. New septic systems will not be permitted in Malibu and owners of existing systems will have to halt wastewater discharges within a decade. It's a partial victory for surfers -- compliance is not required until 2015 for businesses and 2019 for residences -- but it's a huge step forward, thanks to a lot of hard work by Surfrider and many, many others.

SOME INTERESTING SHARK NEWS
The Palisades Post published an article today about sharks at Will Rogers State Beach. Several interesting details were disclosed, including: 1) The boat sited off of Gladstones a few weeks ago belonged to Fischer Productions, which was filming Marine Conservation Science Institute scientists as they tagged sharks. 2) A Smart Positioning Transmitting Tag was attached to the dorsal fin of these sharks to provide real-time tracking data every time the shark's dorsal fin comes out of the water.

RANDY WRIGHT PHOTOGRAPHS A WHITE SHARK AT SUNSET
On October 3, 2009 Randy Wright of Horizons West Surf N' Wear (2011 Main St, Santa Monica) was kayaking a few hundred yards off Sunset Beach. Using a Canon 40d camera with a 24-105 mm lens inside an SPL Waterhousing, Randy captured a stunning series of high-resolution images of a shark breaching. He immediately submitted the images to Ralph Collier of the Shark Research Committee. Based on dorsal coloration, the gray and white pattern on the pelvic fin, shape and color of the caudal fin, location and shapes of the dorsal and pectoral fins, snout and eye, Ralph confirmed that Randy had captured images of a White Shark, with an estimated length of 8 - 10 feet. A sample of the images and the full account of the incident are available on the Shark Research Committee website.
