Eidon and Wahines of the Wave’s 4th Annual Barrels for Boobs Surf Contest was held in Marineland, Florida on April 14th, was a day of surf, sun & fun. The event was divided into men’s and women’s heats with shortboard and longboard classes, with an array of ages in competition.
Eidon is a women’s swimwear and lifestyle apparel company, whose mission is to create high-quality products that women can feel confident in. They have also fostered a community of like-minded individuals who share their life of the water, travel and are constantly pushing themselves outside of their comfort zone.
Established in 2011, Wahines of the Waves, or “WOW”, a University of Florida based club, focuses on providing women with a positive and safe environment to practice the board sport their most passionate about while hosting monthly meet-ups with coaches.
The last three years' events have raised over $6,800 for the Pink Up the Pace Foundation. This year, the event went above and beyond raising over $8,500! This brings the total donation to over $15,000 in four years. Pink up the Pace is an organization that supports both men and women in the Saint Augustine area funding early breast cancer detection and treatment for those in need.
We were so honored to be a part of this cause and congrats to the rider who went home with our sunnies. Aside from the fundraising success, Barrels for Boobs brought surfers from all over to compete against each other for a good cause and a day of fun, and at the end of the day, what more can you ask for?
