A week or two ago, I was part of something big. You know about Super Storm Sandy. You know how hard the Jersey Shore was hit by Sandy. But what you might not know is that many families are still struggling. Some are not able to return to their homes. Still others are repairing their homes as they go. Rebuilding the Jersey Shore is a long process.
For one weekend, I got to help. I was part of the #JerseyLove Social Moms for Social Good trip. While in Atlantic City and Belmar, we presented the Mayor of Belmar with a very generous donation to help displaced families return to their homes. The donation from the New Jersey Digital Moms and Social Media Moms would not have been possible without the financial support of D6 Surf Skimmer and its parent company, Hang Ten Originals. Those D6 and Hang Ten guys and gals rock AND boy do they know surfing!!
While in Belmar my son got to be a real life surfer dude. How cool is that? Here’s a photo montage of our day on the Jersey Shore “test driving” the new D6 Surf Skimmer board for kids 5-12.
My son got a private surfing lesson from a professional surfer. Pretty cool for a kid!
He’s ready to take the D6 Surf Skimmer out for a spin!
He’s poised. He’s ready to catch a wave!
Looking for a tasty wave!
He’s ready to surf on the new D6 Surf Skimmer!
What is perfection? Finding the perfect wave!
After an afternoon trying out the D6 Surf Skimmer, he built sandcastles!
We were wet. We were drenched. But we had a fun time on the Jersey Shore!
While my son caught some waves, I caught up with my blogging friends…Shana and Beth!
