Encinitas, CA – Most surfers know the hassle of getting to the beach and realizing they’ve got their board and their leash, but are missing the little string that connects the two. Most surfers would also like to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate than us.
The FCS strings for charity are a high quality functional leash string of which 100% of profits go to SurfAid International. The strings are bright blue as a symbol of your support to SurfAid.
“Any surfer who has visited Sumatra would have to have some of his fondest wave riding memories there. It’s impossible to enjoy the natural beauty of the area without wanting to give something back to the less fortunate people who live there. This is our way of reaching out to the entire surfing community to help the people of the Mentawai,” said FCS’s Tyler Callaway
“Transworld has always placed a priority on supporting the surf community’s efforts to improve the world we live in. The Strings for Charity are a great example of team effort including FCS as the manufacturer, surf retailers as the point of purchase, and surfers for making a difference. Transworld SURF is thrilled to have this opportunity to support everyone involved for the ultimate goal of helping the Mentawai people improve their health,” said Charlie Anderson of Transworld SURF.
