Eidon Presents the 4th Annual Barrels for Boobs Surf Contest Raises Funds for Pink Up The Pace Charity
St. Augustine, FL –
Eidon and Wahines of the Waves are stoked to announce that the 4th Annual Barrels for Boobs Surf Contest will be held on April 14th, 2018 in Marineland, Florida. Barrels for Boobs is an annual day of surf, sun, competition, and fun with all net proceeds benefitting the fight against breast cancer. Wahines of the Waves have chosen to support local St. Augustine charity Pink Up The Pace for this year’s contest. The first three events have raised over $6,800 for the foundation and our goal is to reach the $10,000 mark this year. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women in the US, affecting one in every eight women.
The contest is divided into women’s and men’s heats with both shortboard and longboard divisions. All ages are welcome; from groms to elders and we are expecting 80-100 surfers this year. Throughout the contest we have food trucks, raffles, vendors, and music. More information available here: https://www.facebook.com/events/661077280729232/
