Last night at Shaper Studios San Diego, we celebrated 15 years of Surfaid International; an organization founded by surfers saving lives in some of the most remote places on the planet.

We started off the night in the traditional Shaper fashion with surfboard shaping and sharing cold Tecate and Redbull. As everyone settled in we focused our attention towards the founder of Surfaid, Dr. Dave Jenkins. Dr. Dave delivered a very inspirational presentation about the impact Surfaid has had since it's humble beginnings in 2000.

We closed the evening's event with a donation raffle, with a goal of raising $1,000. Thanks to our generous community of Shaper Studios members and a grand prize surfboard from our friends at Firewire Surfboards, we were able to surpass our fundraising goal and save lives on the other side of the world.
