The waves may soon be accessible to all people.
Rex Flodstrom headed to court on February 16th, 2012 with powerful defense attorney Ed Genson, Pro Surfer and Enviromentalist James Pribram, his dedicated surf family and members of the local and national press.
What was the verdict? The charges against him will be dropped after he completes his 20 hours of community service before March 19th, 2012.
In light of recent events, Rex and the Surfrider Foundation will continue to support the “all beaches and all waves should be accessible to all people” belief by asking the city of Chicago to lift strict regulations against surfing at the beaches.
