GIVE BACK WITH THE BEST DAY FOUNDATION!                                                                      

After years as a professional Surfer, ranked as one of top 10 long boarders in the nation, Rocky owner of the McKinnon Surf brand is a phenomenal Waterman, accomplished businessman and is making a difference here in So Calif with the Best Day Foundation.

The Best Day Foundation is a volunteer organization that helps children and young adults ages 4 -24 with special needs build confidence and self-esteem through safe, fun, adventure activities like surfing, bodyboarding, kayaking, snow sports, and more. Please join us in creating special days for children with Autism, Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, blindness, cancer, spinal cord injuries, and other physical and developmental challenges.

Programs with the foundation are as follows: beach obstacle course, tandem surfing, body-boarding, kayaking, stand up paddle and outrigger canoeing.

What a joy to talk with Mike Prestridge of the Best Day Foundation, yesterday.  Not only is the Best Day Foundation a way for surfers to pay it forward, its a great way  for anyone to mark off the Best Day Foundation of their #Payitforwardbucketlist.  As someone who loves to give back and has a love for the ocean it’s perfect to be a part of this organization as a volunteer. How the Beach Buddy program works: You are pared with a participant, you help him/her put on a wet-suit, play on the beach, other fun activities for the day etc. What a great feeling helping kids and adding a big smile to their face! The Best Day Foundation excursions will give these children that feeling of bliss that surfers feel!
