Message From The Founder:

My circumstances this quarter made it difficult for me to visit shops and personally chat with owners and managers. Despite this temporary setback,  I’m thrilled to announce several shops and online donors made an extra effort and stepped up to lend their support,  all in the name of helping to spread cancer awareness throughout the surfing community.  Salt Water Divas of Santa Barbara chipped in by donating a portion of every sale from their new Organic Sunblock, Live Free by Spirit Earth.  The crew at Rincon Designs held a raffle with all proceeds being donated to the Surfing for Life Foundation.  And finally, O’Neill Surf Shop continues to blow through their wristbands with a vengeance. We are committed to the fight - One wristband at a time....Tom Brown
