We're incredibly blessed to live where we do, lead the lives we live, and love the people we hold close. To be frank, it's more than a blessing because we're the lucky ones. The men here are acknowledging this, and are setting out to surf a hundred waves for an incredible cause.
We're getting down to the wire for the 8th annual 100 Wave Challenge! Our team is 12 members strong and our goal is to raise $20000, so almost $1700 a piece. The last time we talked, you guys helped us raise $2000 in less than 72 hours.

His story is a testament of the lasting effects of apartheid conditions in South African, which ended more than 2 decades ago.
