To each and every one on my surf team for IJSC,

I am absolutely humbled by your belief in me and the cause I deeply believe in and am just gobsmacked by your generosity. I have a lump in my throat. Thank God I'm typing. We (you and I) have reach our goal of $2500 and then some. Also, before I forget I just found out a few days ago that Indo Jax Surf Charities has been endorsed by United Health Care and we will also be conducting a camp for Wounded Warriors and their families in this year. With out you this would not have been possible.

I wish I could thank every one individually and in person. I want you to be the first know I believe the momentum we have created would be squandered if we didn't push the limit. So, I plan on posting the following or something close to it on facebook.com or sending out in e-mails. Feel free to do the same.

! KOWABUNGA ! The wave just jacked up to 12 feet on a late take off. That's like $200ish a foot. The take off and drop were made; and in the middle of a mondo bottom turn, I felt the momentum and energy. We blew right through the goal of $2500 !

(for my teamates at USA Luge and ADK that's like curves 13 and 14 into 15 at LP)

So, I'm going pull into the barrel and go for it. BUT there's always a price to pay.

I'm challenging everyone out there who may have hesitated donating to this cause, missed an e-mail or just found out about it. Here's the deal. I'm going to up my goal to $3,000. If I make that goal, I will shave one of my eyebrows completely off; and no... I will not put any eye makeup on or cover it up. Hey, there's nothing foamy in this section. Come paddle into the line up. 'Cause if you're not living on the edge once in a while....you're taking up too much space.

Richard, thank you so much for your donation. You're making me look good. I did check into the Wounded Warrior charity and you were right. There is/was skimming off the top at some chapters. However we never gave them money. We would just take the veterans out surfing as a kid of therapy session. Alot of them take it up after we have a camp for them. So I guess that is a good thing in spite of the skullduggery.
