Movember Madness -77 Staches and “Growing”

The mo grow-off is getting hairy, as those who followed traditional Movember rules are in day 9 of 30 w/o shaving. But for the sake of philanthropy SWELL accepts any form of stache, and we’ve donated $1 to prostate cancer research for every mo shared on SWELL’s Facebook wall.

Faux-mos initiated the photos rolling in, while the rest are busy growing.. and the photos are fantastically filthy! Mo-Sistas put on their mo-faces, and are leading the charge in support with all sorts of festive fur.

Here a few fake favorites, but they need your “likes” to compete with the field of furry supporters,  like Jakii Schwan’s finger stache who leads with 61 votes. They’re competing for a chance to win Sanuks, Swell giftcards, and the pride of prostate fund raising.

Click the pics to see all 77 staches from  first week of Movember. “Like” to vote for your favorite MO.

No sure how to to get your Mo on? Get schooled at Swell.com/Movember and support in style.

Come back for Movember happenings in the surf world.
