Sufers Healing is an amazing foundation that helps children with autism.

 "Surfers Healing was founded by Izzy and Danielle Paskowitz. Their son, Isaiah, was diagnosed with Autism at age three. Like many autistic children, he often suffered from sensory overload--simple sensations could overwhelm him. The ocean was the one place where he seemed to find respite. A former competitive surfer, Israel hit upon an idea--with Isaiah on the front of his surfboard, and Izzy steering from the back, the two spent the day surfing together. Surfing had a profound impact on Isaiah." 

Every year there is a surfboard auction where the proceeds directly benefit Surfers Healing. This year boards ridden and signed by the ASP's #1 and 2 surfers, Joel Parkinson and Kelly Slater, are up for auction. Most bids are right around the price of a new board, except Slater's commanding a bid of $4,400. Whoever spends that much on a board, I really hope they ride the hell out of it and don't hang it on a wall in some land locked house.
