2014 Liquid Militia Team Weekend - Another Team Success!
Our Clothing Brand Liquid Militia hosts an annual 'Liquid Militia Team Weekend' campout. We have been producing these for years to honor and support our LM Brand team riders. The week long campout is held over Memorial weekend and is a private invitational event. Our motto for Liquid Militia is 'Get Wet or Go Home', nobody in our crew has a problem wtih that, in fact drying out is not an option.
Every year our Team Weekend favors a theme. This year we had the 'GOLDEN TICKET'. Redeemed at a drawing for winning the items donated by our coolest PWC brands and companies, attendees had the chance to strike gold. We were honored to host the Santa Barbara #1 band The Caverns on Friday night for a personal concert on the beachfront.
We honored our nation's military heroes over Memorial weekend with a memorial flag display and paid tribute to those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice protecting and defending out nation.
The food was too numerous to mention, special thanks to Hydrotruf, Kyla Dominguez and Ryan Smith and the Hamade family for their crayfish boil and nightly dinner support!
Our Team Riders are listed here on this link:
Let's discuss a recap of the weeks' festivities and happening events. Thanks for those who support our Brand and live the lifestyle.
Author Ellen Butler has lived in the Northern Virginia area for thirty years. Originally living inside the beltway, she moved to Prince William County ten years ago, in an effort to flee traffic congestion. Unfortunately, the traffic followed her down here, but the community keeps her family firmly rooted in PWC. She has a Master’s in Public Administration and Policy and her history includes a long list of writing and editing for dry but illuminating professional newsletters and journals, and windy papers on public policy and political science.
The leap to novel writing is simply a creative outlet for her over active and romantic imagination to run wild. Her genre is Women’s Fiction and Romance and Ellen is currently promoting her newest novel Poplar Place, a fiction novel with suspense, romance, and a dash of paranormal. Ellen is currently scheduling book club appearances for fall 2014 and spring 2015. Book club questions for Ellen’s novels can be found on her website. Her next book, Heart of Design will be released July 2014. All of Ellen’s ebooks are available for all tablet formats and can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo & the iBookstore.
Purchase links can also be found on her website.

What does your water rescue certification mean to you and to others?
It's not a piece of paper. It's an representation of skillsets based on standardization of the best practices and current methods that enable you to commence your training or professional development and your ability to acquire the necessary hours and skills of expertise to perform your duties safely and with competence.
Certification programs are often mismanaged, misguided and abused both by agencies and participants such as instructor and student cadre. Mainly due to budget, time and resource.
The certification program enables you to understand specific risks, comprehension of water and equipment needs and to prepare for recovery and transport of survivors, casualities and equipment or produce searches and or manage events.
The liability issue is the cornerstone of capability. You have either done your homework, are physically and emotionally fit, have the proper equipment and hours underway and understand how to effectively utilize it in the exact environment you will be operating in, or you do not.
A certificate for a recipient who has been vetted and tested is not a 'get out of jail' free card. It is a serious responsibility of defending and representing standards. Occupational users need to be prepared for what a 3 year certificate enables them to utilize in field work. Certificates are revokable if the operator proves to be negligent and disregard their operational standards they were tested under.
This is a serious liability issue. Safety is a trust that you earn every time you deploy. It will require of you to produce values and exceed them. It will require of you to understand the parameters of your certification.
Let's have your attention, your focus and in the end, your understanding for this important subject. - K38/Shawn Alladio

Big Wave Surfing - Water Safety
The Best Practices Or Not?
The words fit easily enough, but do they work?
What is big wave water safety?
It's broiled in the concepts from the EMS responder mindset, the atheltes involved, the sponsors who support equipment or fuding for expeditions, the silent families left behind and the water rescue specialist.
Whom is considered a subject matter expert for all of these applications? Self appointed or real world tried and tested, their worlds often clash in a conflict of experience, attitude and capability.
Ask me how I know?
I've been a vocale witness of this silent creep of safety chatter since 1993 when the Strapped Crew first began the catalyst we see today adopted by everyone interested in all those years of plying; safety still has not been taken seriously.
What is involved?
2. Swell/Wave Energy (weather considerations, tidal/wind/power)
3. Athlete mindset, capability (time in water and experience level, physical fitness)
4. Type of boards (tow boards/towlines/surfboards/rescue boards)
5. Preparation (training, safety gear, rest/hydration)
6. Type of Rescue Water Craft (RWC)
7. RWC training techniques and practices (credentials and accredetion)
8. EMS response, equipment, timelines, transport (land, air, water)
9. Fame or Blame - Media pressure, sponsorship expectation by athlete, athlete claim to fame, explotation of surf sites
10. The Hate Factor of Modern Surfing (everybody hates somebody-negative aspects of the sport prevent or block the ability for unity and community to further create associate bodies with lack of effective leadership values, its a 'solo' sport)
I get asked this question constantly, ‘how do I do what you are doing’? The answer is that I do not have the answer, that is for you to decide and it begins with a discovery phase and personal volition.
I manage a company (K38) that is an educational provider for occupational users with the knowledge being applied to their agency requirements and area of operations. K38 is not an organization that provides volunteer opportunities for RWC use, but I do have supportive answers that I followed myself through the years to get to the level of volunteerism that I enjoy today.
My lessons learned were prior to RWC’s being accepted by safety agencies beginning in the late 1970’s, many years have passed and I’m still learning and adapting my knowledge base. There are great organizations you can investigate and interview to discover if you fit into their mission status and if you have a willingness to ‘pay your dues’ and join up.
Perhaps you don’t have a Rescue Water Craft background but you have passion for volunteering your energies. In the back of your mind there is a gnawing thought you visit often, you want to help. You don’t have any direct connections. You don’t know anyone and you don’t know where to start.
Perhaps you own your own Personal Watercraft and have assisted others in the past while out riding and you realize the value of helping others and want to apply yourself through a focused group effort. First off realize that you are addressing a ‘specific use’ of application.
Water Rescue Teams often employ several different methods, and disciplines or they may not use Rescue Water Craft (PWC). Typically a Rescue Water Craft is not the sole tool of water safety needs, it’s one of many employed on ‘some’ teams.
Let's look at constructive ideas for you!
