One Last Wave Project

As many had asked for a way to contribute to the project to ensure its continuation, I opened this avenue but also make it very clear that financial contributions are NOT necessary to have your loved one's name written on the board. 
Our mission is to bring the healing power of the ocean to help grieving families coping with the loss of a loved one as I had and continue to do. We memorialize your loved ones by etching their names on hand-shaped surfboards and bring them out into the ocean to catch one last wave.
Your contributions have allowed me to build three fully funded surfboards with over 9200 loved ones names on them, each taking a little over a month to complete. These beacons of hope ensure that every loved ones story is told in order to help the many families find healing and community through One Last Wave Project. We have begun creating our sixth board now!

I do want to reiterate; you do NOT need to contribute any money to have your loved one on the board. Everyone is always welcome with open arms and always will be. 
Much love and healing,
