The conditions for the first annual Coffin Brothers Surf Out could not have been better and on a scale of 1-10 on the stokometer they were a 12. Hosted by The Surf Happens Foundation on Saturday August 8, at Jalama County Campground in uber consistent glassy 4-6 foot peaks, every nook of sand and reef as far as the eye could see was filled with the love. It was indeed a dream come true for the 100+ youth and families that made the trek to her shoreline.

In 2014 the Surf Happens Foundation began funding free community outreach surfing days to local youth who could benefit from a day of physical activity outdoors. A year later SHF has had the privilege of hosting 7 individual days serving approximately 160 local youth from lower-income communities, and children affected by cancer and their families. This past week SHF sponsored a free surf day for 15 teen girls from the Girls Inc of Carpinteria Eureka! Program.
