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, granted 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 child is priceless. Make that difference in someone’s life!

Music by DJ Paul & Clay, a cash donations bar, tasty Finger Foods,
