Our Country Is On Fire.
As you are all aware Australia in a state of crisis with the current ongoing bushfires. We are seeing it every day and the devastation it has left behind with the loss of countless animals, homes, bushland & heartbreakingly, lives. 

In an effort to shed some positivity in a dark time we would like to spotlight some of the work the Surf Industry is doing to create awareness & donations to go towards the bushfires.
We chose to donate $1000 across four charities. WIRES Wildlife Rescue, Red Cross Disaster Relief & Recovery, Salvation Army Disaster Appeal & NSW Royal Firefighting Service. Along side with ongoing donations to local fundraising happening in Geraldton.
