Sweet Potato-itis: a regenerative condition induced when riding a Firewire Sweet Potato Surfboard. Symptoms include: non-stop smiling, uncontrollable amounts of stoke, catching and claiming the smallest of waves, and more fun than you can handle in a single session! Please Note: For smiles that last more than 6 hrs. please consult a physician!!!
Firewire has quickly become an industry leader in surfboard technology, design, and overall popularity. Their winning combination of R&D, craftsmanship, quality, and performance are why more and more people are gravitating towards the brand. Their boards have been test piloted and refined by some of the world’s best and most influential surfers and shapers and they have been proven in almost any conditions; from World Tour events to your own home break, Firewire is making an impact and taking the surf world by storm!
Well the holidays have a bit of swell forecast, at least the first half of them do. Why not try a Firewire? Heck grab the kids, load up the car, the bike, the horse drawn carriage, or however you get your roll on and stop by Surf Ride in Solana Beach for a little demo. The guys there are pretty rad, like a modern day rad….
Thanks to all those involved with Share the Stoke Foundation for giving Firewire, and other companies within the surf industry, the platform to provide the youth of the world with donated goods. Making a difference!
It has been an amazing year full of accomplishment at Share The Stoke Foundation. Together with our sponsors we have kept over 50 kids off the street by giving them surfboards. These kids live in Florida, California, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. The boys and girls range in ages from 9-17 years old. Some of these kids are ripping up the waves already and we are clear that this simple gift has changed their lives.
2012 will be a big year for us as we will host our first annual Share The Stoke Day. This day will be in South Florida and will be aimed at gathering families at the beach to celebrate everything ocean. We will host information booths to educate people on cleaner and greener living solutions, give away surfboards, and offer free surf lessons. Keep your eyes out for an invitation to the event which will happen this coming summer.
If you like the work we do and are wondering what to give as a gift this holiday season make a tax deductible donation in someone’s name to Share the Stoke Foundation. We will send a photo and a note about a kid we have impacted because of people like you. Additionally, we will provide a tax deferred letter for your 2011 records and in the event that your company matches donations you can submit it to them for matching dollars. You can donate here: http://sharethestokefoundation.com/content/donate. You can also stoke your friends and family out with some of our hip gear. http://sharethestokefoundation.com/accessories
Special thanks to Firewire Surfboards, Sticky Bumps, Ocean and Earth, Bird Surfboards, and Badger Balm suntan lotion. Additionally, we love and appreciate all of the support from our friends and family. We look forward to a huge 2012 and can’t wait to keep kids off the street together. Keep spreading the word and invite at risk kids to send us a note about their desires to surf.
