Since we cannot host an After-Party this year, we will be hosting a unique virtual fundraising competition to win a custom board, hand-shaped by renowned and respected Monmouth County shaper, Tom Eadon to the dimensions of your choosing! The surfboard fundraising competition is open to everyone, not just contestants! Head to the website for more details, follow the link to the GoFundMe page, select “create your own team” when prompted and start fundraising! All funds will go to Clean Ocean Action’s vital conservation programs.
