Surf mag, sports Web site to help clean-up Po’ipu

Life’s a beach, and then you clean it up.

That’s the motto for Nalu Underground surf magazine and, both based on Kaua’i, who are sponsoring a Po’ipu Beach clean-up on Saturday.

The group plans to meet up at 8:30 a.m. at Po’ipu Beach and then move along the south shore from Maha’ulepu to Acid Drop.

A concert is scheduled after the clean-up at 1 p.m.

“We just want to give back to the community that’s been so good to us. That’s really what it’s all about, showing love for the land we live on,” co-creator Richie Petersen said.

The event is a benefit for the Boys and Girls Club of Hawai’i.

Other participating sponsors include the Po’ipu Beach Broiler, Maile Kaua’i, Koloa Natural Foods, Joe’s On The Green, The Beach House Restaurant, Daniel C. Schmidt (RA) of REMAX Kauai, Kauai Cove Cottages, Jungle Girl, SBOL Web design services, the Poipu Beach Foundation, Stoopid Chikin Wear, A Hideaway Day Spa, Garden Angels Inflatables, the Window Doctor, Ken’s Mobile Automotive Service, Bold Pacific Ltd., and Will Squyres Helicopter Tours.

“It’s going to be a great time. Everyone should come out and help clean up Po’ipu Beach and then enjoy a free concert,” Petersen said. For more information about the event, contact Petersen at 635-0774, or e-mail him at
