What a great evening. Thank you Maryke (Two Oceans Aquarium) and Spike (Wavescape) for putting on a fantastic show with Nic Rabinowitz pulling it all together.It was a cold and wet Cape Town winters evening but it was a SOLD OUT event and there was such a buzz in the foyer as people arrived. The Two Oceans Aquarium is a fabulous venue, the line up of big wave surfers was truly impressive, their stories were jaw dropping and the photos and video clips were epic.Thank you Mickey Duffus, Mike Schlebach, Dave Smith, James Taylor Ross Lindsay and Greg Bertish - we loved each one of your stories. Respect !Thank you JackBlack for sponsoring the refreshments and speaker thank you gifts.We raised R2 500 in our raffle - enough to fund one more Pink Rescue Buoy and we had loads of kind people committing to sponsorship - at last count we 'sold' 8. Thank you everyone - we appreciate your support.To join in on the project by sponsoring a Pink Buoy, please click here.
