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.

I'm just off the phone with a very excited Tom. He had another eye/cataract surgery earlier in the week, which had some complications. This morning, after another surgery to resolve the issues, he reported being able to see movement, and variations in tone! He is so grateful to all of you for helping make this happen, as am I. We will be updating our plans for the future, in the next month, so keep in touch! Aloha - Melinda Morey

Dad - you'll have to forgive me posting this photo, but even in a hospital bed, you are an extremely cool cat! #tommorey #friendsoftommorey

Aloha everyone. I wanted to personally thank you all again and give you an update on Tom's status. As a direct result of the donations received, we have been able to get Tom on better health insurance, so he has seen several eye specialists in the past few months. 

In fact, he is going in for surgery on his left eye this Saturday!!! We are hopeful that the surgery will give him a little vision back in the one eye.

Please keep him in your prayers for successful results. We will keep you posted on his status.

Again - without every one of you participating, none of this would be possible. We are eternally grateful.   Mahalo - Melinda Morey

The Friends of Tom Morey team are delighted to have passed the $91,000 mark for our fundraiser. We have only love and gratitude for all our donors, subscribers and supports around the globe.

Tom is stoked but we still putting the call out there fir your support. We have set up a trust for Tom to recieve these funds but our ambition is to be able to raise twice as much by the time our campaign is one year old on World Bodyboard Day 2018 so Tom will be securely taken care of for the next ten years. 

With the level of support Tom has received so far we are confident we can hit our target. We will be releasing a video update soon on Tom's improved situation with details of how our precious funds will be used by the Friends of Tom Morey team composed of Seamus Mc Goldrick, Melinda Morey and Mike Stewart.

Please share our fundraiser and check us out on Facebook.

You are the people making this great thing happen.
