SOLANA BEACH — Grommets were looking for a good deal on a first board. Veterans were simply seeking a good deal. No matter their goal, surfers of all ages and abilities attended Rerip’s third annual Future of Surfing fundraiser Oct. 17 at Fletcher Cove Park to help raise money for the Solana Beach Junior Lifeguard program.
The four-hour event featured entertainment, food, a used surfboard sale and a raffle. With some help from area students including Katalina Aguilar, Eva Fleet and Ruby Feeney, artist Wade Koniakowsky spent the day transforming donated, used surfboards into collectable works of art.
Rerip was founded by Meghan Dambacher of Solana Beach and Lisa Randall. With the slogan “Reduce, Reuse, Rerip,” the company goal is to enhance the community by sharing and preserving available resources.
