Surfers Healing is an awesome organisation run by Izzy Paskowitz, that takes kids with autism surfing. The stoke they create is amazing to watch and be a part of. If you haven't heard of them look them up. Each year they run a charity auction at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna to help them continue they're brilliant work.
This year I donated a hollow wooden surfboard that was made from scrap wooden pallets, picked up from the side of the road. The board is s 5'10 fish made using the hollow wooden surfboard method. The board turned out really well with a rustic feel to it. The board weighs about 7kg which is heavy for a surfboard but is completely surfable. The weight of a wooden surfboard can vary greatly depending on the woods used, and the method of the build. This board was built with longevity in mind, hence it being heavier.
The art reflects all the positive energy bouncing around on these days. It shows a surfer with a child on his back having what Surfers Healing call One Perfect Day.
