    The shear amount of talent on that island that week is going to be incredible…not to mention the gear/plugs at your disposal. I really wish I could participate and put up that kind of cash to a deserving and worthy cause. Kudos to the sponsors and supporters….would be great to see others follow suit in the surfcasting community.
