Kudos!: Tristan Prettyman Sings and cleans up the beach

Capitol recording artist Tristan Prettyman doesn’t just strum guitar and trill. She’s also an avid surfer, and she’s willing to put her money where her mouth is when it comes to her favorite beaches. On Saturday, she’ll be involved with the second annual Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project at San Francisco’s Ocean Beach. Residents are encouraged come out and help her spruce up the hang-10 haunt from 3 to 5 p.m.

The singer will be picking up litter like everyone else, as well as offering her own sort of reward: A post-cleanup concert at the Beach & Park Chalet, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The Chalet is at 1000 Great Highway at Ocean Beach.

“Having grown up in San Diego, I spent most of my time at the beach and can’t imagine what life would be like without the surf and sand,” Prettyman says. “I’m excited to volunteer and share my music with people who take time to give back to their communities.”

The event is the result of a partnership between Barefoot Wine and the Surfrider Foundation, a nonprofit group dedicated to protecting beaches and oceans.
