WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT - EVENING HIGHLIGHTS:

The purpose of this very special event is to raise funds and continue outreach and education for our ongoing campaign to restore the shore in Long Beach by reconfiguring the Long Beach Breakwater.   The Surfrider Foundation believes that, by reconfiguring the 2.5 mile long eastern end of the Long Beach breakwater, we can improve water circulation and water quality and bring back some gentle rolling breakers to Long Beach!

RAFFLE ITEMS:

9 Fish Beluga BoardRAFFLE - GRAND PRIZE!!!

9 Fish Logo9:FISH - 5'10" BELUGA
Like all boards from 9:Fish, the Beluga was designed to catch as many waves as possible. Its large round nose provides plenty of surface area towards the front to make sure that you plane above the water and get into just about anything from 1ft on up. Depending on your skills, you may even be able to nose ride it! With a large swallow tail and a quad-fin setup, the Beluga turns great even on small, mushy waves. The perfect board for almost all conditions.

Retail value - $450
