Thanks from one of our charities

This featured on a recent OnBoard eNewsletter from one of our charities SurfAid International:

2007 Paddle Round The Pier Beach Festival Benefits SurfAid for the 3rd Time!

For three years running now, SurfAid has been the beneficiary of the Paddle Round the Pier Beach Festival in Brighton, U.K. A big thanks goes out to Dave Samuel, Henrietta Hutcheon and everyone involved in this year's event for raising nearly $8,000 for SurfAid's efforts.

We are pleased to announce that next year's event will once again benefit the people of the Mentawai Islands and Nias.

Another video, but it ain't Brighton!

Thanks to Alex Wade for posting this on his most excellent 'Surf Nation' blog for The Times...

Cross your fingers for those big South Westerlies to blow and you never know!
