Our friends at Ergo have deep roots in the East Coast Surf Scene, and they’ve mobilized to assist those uprooted in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. After watching their beloved coastal communities get consumed by the sea, a massive effort to Restore the Shore is currently underway.
“There was ten-foot bombs in Mantoloking spitting after the storm. It couldn’t even put a smile on my face. I was just like ‘F**k you!’ to the ocean.” Says Sam Hammer (via Surfline) When dozens of century old landmark piers and boardwalks were destroyed, so was the 38 billion dollar tourism industry in the beach communities that hosted the Quiksilver Pro New York just last year.
With people still stranded in without essential resources to survive, surf companies like Ergo, Hurley and Billabong are scrambling to deliver much needed supplies before the next storm hits the suffering residents.
Ergo has commissioned a special edition Restore the Shore apparel collection with 100% of the profits supporting hurricane relief.
Billabong arrived with truck loads of winter gear for the thousands of survivors forced from their homes, as they brace for a cold Nor Easter weather system.
Hurley and Jon Rose arrived with their Waves for Water support which provides Do-it-Yourself water filtration systems.
Daniel Tosh of tv’s Tosh.0 glorifies videos of the most rotten side of humanity, while he acts like a sex offender and insults his audience. So why do over 2 million people tune into his show? Maybe because he threw down the best diatribe on surfing since the Bobby Martinez melt-down, or maybe because of his trendsetting style.
He recently hosted the show wearing the latest styles from Kane and Unke. The Slub Jacket seen here is brand new at SWELL.
If you’ve never seen the video of the super frothing guy at the wedge, enjoy this web redemption and the epic rant of Tosh heckling the surf community. (It’s worth sitting though the ad, sorry)
