- TERENCE KOH

Some of the artist will come do an exhibition of the board at the Roxy Jam, that will take place in Biarritz from the 10th to 14th of July 2010, and some will be at the Frieze Art show in London in October.
After we will organize an auction on internet, and all the funds will be
 donated to Surf and Hope Foundation, to help more surfer kids.
This event will be huge for us, so a big thanks to all the people who've helped us, the surfers, the artists, and we will post more news from this action very soon...
