Hi Magic Island Fans!
Last Saturday, the 19th of June, the Magic Island Team was stoked to be a part of a classic Surfers for Autism event in Stuart.
If you don’t know, Surfers for Autism is a great South-Florida based Non-profit organization that puts together awesome events where volunteer surfers help teach young Autistic children about the stoke of Surfing.
The Stuart event was Magic Island’s second Surfers for Autism event and what a great one it was. The swell conditions were not exactly surfer friendly, but the day itself was gorgeous and the small lines in the early morning made for some great learning conditions for the young riders.
As the day progressed the ocean conditions became a bit lake-like, but the smiles on the faces of the young children kept everyone in high spirits on the beautiful beach day.
The Stuart event was blessed with a great number of volunteers who braved the sun for the duration of the event with bright smiles on their faces. Along with some great memories, good rides and beaming smiles, the event also served as a great fundraiser with a lot of people walking away from the event with some great SFA gear and prizes from some of the great sponsors of the event including Stuart locals The Ohana Surf Shop and Cowabunga Surf Shop, Acai product makers Sambazon, Amazing Sand Removal Product manufacturer Sand Gone and of course all of us at Magic Island Designs.
Magic Island was very stoked to meet and talk with some of the great people at the event. A big thanks to everyone who stopped by the Magic Island Tent to say hello and check out our gear!
In addition to raising awareness for a great cause, the Surfers for Autism event was a ton of fun for all those involved. We at Magic Island would like to thank Don and the rest of the crew at Surfers for Autism for a great event!
More Pictures to come in the following days!
