The Story


Tom Morey's influence in surfing is unparalleled. He has turned more people on to the “stoke" of wave riding than anyone else in history. His contributions have been life changing for millions. Rather than seeking financial wealth, Tom’s mission for gain is the spread of stoke and unity. In his mind, the world can always be a better place. 

This selfless path has given Tom some internal fulfillment, but created financial hardship in these final years of his life. At a time when Tom should be nourished by, and set from his contributions, he is physically blind and scrambling in that darkness to make basic ends meet. 

Our team (Mike Stewart, Melinda Morey, Seamus McGoldrick (Shambles), and Saul Zaragoza) has set up this campaign to generate immediate financial assistance for Tom and his wife (and 24/7 caretaker) Marchia. We invite you to join us.

Whoo hoo. Today we reached the halfway mark of our second campaign goal of $100,000. The impact the 1000+ donors so far have made for Tom and Marchia Morey is huge, but we still need to keep the campaign going. Even if we reach our next goal of $100,000 that translates as just $10,000 per year for Tom and his wife for the next ten years.

Tom's inventions and influence has spread around the world and hopefully, as awareness of the Friends of Tom Morey campaign spreads, we will be able to reach many more milestones. 

Lots done and more to do, and none of this could have happened without all your love and support so keep the love and support flowing and please share this campaign among your friends, family and local surf community.

I am catching up reading all of your messages, with a lump in my throat. I had no idea when we started this campaign, what kind of response we would get. It is amazing, heart warming, and very encouraging to see so many people come out to help my father. Please know how much it means to all of us behind this campaign, as well as to Tom and Marchia. It is good to finally be able to call him say "help is on the way!"  Many many thanks from all of us.
