As a high school teacher and head coach of the Long Beach Surf team, loving husband, surfer, musician, environmental activist, and martial arts master, Daniel Bobis was a fixture in the community of Long Beach, New York. Danny’s life was tragically cut short while on a surf trip to Indonesia in July, and it is the city’s intention to ensure that his memory, love for life and charitable spirit live on in the community of Long Beach.
After seeing the impact that Danny had on the city of Long Beach during the Quiksilver Pro New York, Quiksilver is has decided to participate in The Daniel Bobis Memorial Fundraiser by providing a Quiksilver Pro New York Memorial Surfboard and a Quiksilver Pro New York surfboard signed by all World Tour Surfers, as well as donating Quiksilver product to be offered in the raffles and auctions.
There will be open bar, food and music, and an outside tent area. The raffles and auctions will offer a variety of items including custom made surfboards, new and used surfboards, snowboards, snowboard outerwear, headphones, autographed memorabilia, art work, sporting event tickets and much more.
All proceeds will go to benefit Danny’s wife, Rachel.
