Over the years many of us have spent time in the water either surfing, diving or sailboarding. On occasion, our abilities as watermen have been called into action in order to help rescue someone in their time of need. In most instances our efforts are successful and that person lives to surf or dive another day. However, tragically, that is not always the case. The biggest challenge is what happens to the family members that are left behind.
Some of us give back through our involvement in organizations like the Surfrider Foundation. Others will participate in beach clean ups. Our goal is to combine the efforts of the surf community that is made up by everyday watermen and also the surf companies that benefit from our passions for the water.
Establish a network of contributors through Facebook and other Social Media sites. Reach out to Surfline, Shop-Eat-Surf, Surfrider Foundation and endemic publications to promote interest and knowledge of the FWF.
