KID CREATURE SURFBOARDS
Calvin is a 12 year old kid with a huge love for life. He is the youngest of 3 but is never lost in the lineup. His early childhood was hampered by severe allergies including a potentially deadly one with peanuts (which is with him for life). Calvin is also asthmatic. Calvin moved from Arizona when he was 3 and has been in the water pretty much ever since. Over the last few years Cal has become an avid surfer. During some of his tougher times with asthma his mom would tell him not to surf. Made sense right? If you can’t breath well, you probably want to stay clear of the water. He pleaded saying that he actually felt much better when he was surfing. I surfed with him regularly during those bouts with asthma & sure enough he literally never coughed or labored in the water. I was sure it was a line of BS to get his way but it definitely was not.
Cal’s exuberance & always up for a surf attitude has endeared him to some of the more prominent “older” groms in Newport. He has recently been drawing art for them & eventually made them into t-shirts. They are pure, true & capture the essence of a kid with a huge imagination and a gift of expression. Cal has always had a big heart for kids who struggle for any reason. So when he heard about a group of kids that were recently surfing at the same surf camp he used to attend, he was intrigued. He would obviously have empathy for anyone who labors to breath but when he heard to what extent they fight for breath he decided that is where he wanted to make a partnership. He wants to donate 10% of the profit on all of his Kid Creature sale to your fight against cystic fibrosis. So when you purchase a shirt on the KidCreature.net site you are helping the fight for breath that many kids are struggling with every day. Thank you very much for taking the time to visit this site & to read about our project.
