The Story

We are Share The Stoke Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to donating surfboards to kids all over the world in an attempt to give them a positive outlet.  We spend a fair bit of time traveling to some amazing places doing this work.  

Two weeks prior to the devastating 7.8 earthquake in Canoa, Ecuador the Share The Stoke Foundation crew was there in this small beach town.  We participated in a surf and yoga clinic for young kids with the ultimate goal to donate some brand new surfboards to the kids in Canoa.  Coincidentally, while we were there we traced outlines of the kids hands' for a future art project that we had been brainstorming. 

The 7.8 earthquake destroyed these same kids' neighborhoods, schools, and homes.  We would like to invite you to join us in helping them rebuild their school.  We will be raffling off a Firewire Surfboard (6.0'x20"x2.5") with the outlines of the kids' hands who are working to rebuild what they have lost.  All of the funds we raise from this raffle will go to the James Dean Byrd Foundation, a non-profit in Canoa committed to repairing the school and the kids' lives.

******************************************WIN A FIREWIRE SURFBOARD*******************************************

We will be raffling off this killer art piece drawn by Joann Ferrieri on a Firewire Surfboard complete with FCS fins, leash and traction pad as well as 10 bit bars of Sticky Bumps Waxon June 30th!  We will sell chances to win in $10 increments.  So if you donate $10 then you get one chance to win.  If you donate $100 then you get 10 chances to win.  It is pretty simple.  These are the hands that have endured the earthquake and all that comes with a disaster of this magnitude.  Let's help them get their school in order!

To see the work of the foundation where the money will be sent check out James Dean Byrd Foundation.

For background information on us you can see our website at Share The Stoke Foundation.

****NOTE:  We will ship the surfboard anywhere in the continental US.  If you live elsewhere and can organize the shipment to yourself we are open to that.  But please send a message with your intent to [email protected]  STOKED!*****
