Intro by John Cocozza

It has been my pleasure to attend and photograph this event for the past several years.  It is a surf event that i look forward to supporting & attending each year.  This years event saw some decent surf for the contest but always epic charity demonstrated by the donors, sponsors, and attendants.  


This years donors of the auction were legends such as: 


Aaron Chang & Wade Koniakowsky who donated a collaberative art surfboard, including Aaron Chang photo on top and Wade Koniakowskys painting on bottom. 


Robert August who donated a hand shaped and autographed longboard with 1 week vacation at his house in Costa Rica.
