Waves for Water: HUrricane Sandy Relief

Coast to Coast: Surfers for Supplies is a group of surfers and beach lovers who care about helping people in the Northeast affected by Hurricane Sandy. Most members live in SoCal, so it’s difficult to help our friends and family. This group helps coordinate efforts to gather supplies and get them back to the people who need them most. We’ve started our efforts with surf shops in Southern CA and have partnered with Waves for Water, Surfers Environmental Alliance and ELECTRIC. Below is a list of items we’re hoping to collect and distribute. If you can help, it would be much appreciated!
