Kevin in Liberia

Its Purpose: to raise awareness of current social, political, ethical, and spiritual issues within a relief and development context in Liberia. Its effectiveness is simple: It relies on me, the author, to provide insightful, and often debate-sparking material that will encourage you, the reader to get engaged through comment contributions, emails, and promoting others to read, re-think, and respond to the important issues discussed.

I know not which is most profitable to me, health or sickness, wealth or poverty, nor anything else in the world. That discernment is beyond the power of men or angels, and is hidden among the secrets of your Providence, which I adore, but do not seek to fathom. ~ a prayer by Blaise Pascal

Surfing Poopy Point, Monrovia

The Poopy Point Break [aka Rocktown and the Mamba Point Break (even though its not actually Mamba Point] is arguably the best wave in the greater Monrovia area. In the rainy season this point break can produce some gnarley lefts that come with speed. When its big, the rips at this spot will force you to constantly paddle to stay in the same location, much less make any progress in getting to where you want to be to catch a wave. I would suggest hiring a 'ca-noo' to taxi you back and forth between rides.

Keith Chapman and his bodyboard are locked in on this one.
