Regretfully, as it has been all freaking summer, I can't make this event. But, I urge anyone out there that can make it to this and volunteer to do so.

It's a very worthwhile cause and seeing what it does for these kids will put you back to where and why you started surfing in the first place. I dare you to not share the feeling of pure joy, the same kind you had when you first paddled out...

So, if you can, get out there....even if only for a little while and cheer them on.
