Cabrinha Demo / Fund raiser for Phil "Big Air" Nelson

Postby Toby » Thu Nov 29, 2012 6:54 pm

We are having a big Memorial day, with races and just fun kiteboarding on December 8th in Ft. Walton, Florida.
It is for the family of Phil "Big Air" Nelson and the battle against Lung Cancer. Phil recently passed away do to Lung Cancer. A kiteboarder who started back in the
beginning. Phil managed a kite shop and had a big impact on getting many people into this great sport! "He will be missed."

Thank you all. I will be there doing anything I can. Damo

Damien Leroy has made a generous donation. He has donated is speed racing board that he used at the World Championships in Port St. Louie, France and at the North American Speed Sailing Championships in Martha's Vineyard Massachusetts where he placed 2nd and 3rd. It has also been autographed by Damien and a lot of other Pro Riders. We thought the best way to make this work was to have an Ebay Auction, so everyone could bid on this board 50% of the auction will automatically go to the American Cancer Society. The rest will be used for his families expenses to attend the Memorial, with the final remainder being donated to the American Cancer Society. We will have a lot more Cabrinha gear that will be given out at the event for local riders who attend the event. Thanks everyone for the calls and emails. Keep praying for wind this weekend.
