The ocean has always been my home
There, I’ve grown up
And learnt the most valuable lessons of life
That we are people who need dreams
And aspirations
That if I’m patient
I’ll be able to understand mother nature
That if I fight and don’t give up
My body and mind will become stronger
That those who follow their dreams are scared
And feel lonely
But at the end of the day, everything is worth it
That you will lose a lot
And you will want to quit
But you will continue
And that’s the most important part of the journey
That when you win
It’s not the medal that matters
But those you were with along the journey
Sport, surfing at the end
Is my way to become a better person
For me, it’s not only about achieving my dream
But about the person I become going for it

Devastation from Hurricane Sandy. Project Save Our Surf East Coast relief with Mary Osborne and Karon Pardue.

Pro Surfer Mary Osborne and Project Save Our Surf Vice President, Karon Pardue, Take a Roadtrip Across the USA to Bring Supplies to Hurricane Sandy Survivors.

On November 19th, professional surfer Mary Osborne and Project Save Our Surf’s Vice President, Karon Pardue, began a journey across the country to deliver needed supplies to those who are still struggling after Hurricane Sandy stormed through the eastern United States. Mary and Karon have been kind enough to let us ride along with them via Mary’s social media feeds.

* Final Status: DELIVERED – Mary Osborne and Karon Pardue’s journey across the United States on behalf of Project Save Our Surf resulted in the delivery of an estimated $300,000 worth of relief supplies to those struggling in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Thank you to everyone who pitched in, donated, and spread the word about this worthy cause.
