REMEMBER YOUR FIRST WAVE?
SUPPORT THE LOVE OF SURFING.
Be AMAZED and INSPIRED at our Surf Art Auction that will raise funds to ship the community-donated surfboards overseas to the Philippines!
Balikbayod—Returning Wave is a program dedicated to promoting education through the love of surfing. We bring donated surfboards to the Philippines for kids to borrow, provided they stay enrolled in school or return to school through Alternative Learning Systems (ALS).
It is a Life Altering experience to surf, and giving this incredible opportunity to a young kid is priceless. Make that difference in someone’s life.
Art for sale (2d & 3d), music by DJ Paul, a cash bar, tasty Finger Foods and Raffle Prizes!
This is a CASH & CARRY event, please be prepared to bring your fabulous purchases home with you. Credit card transactions available.
