Today at Ali'I Beach Park, Nixon Surfer Dusty Payne
partnered with JDRF Hawaii to provide a fun day at the beach for several local children with Type-1 diabetes. Dusty was joined by friends Mitch Coleborn, Zeke Lau, Dave Wassel, Joel Centeio, Torrey Meister, Fred Patacchia, and Hank Gaskell to spend the day with the kids. Everyone got to compete in fun beach games and then the kids learned to surf with some of the top professional surfer's in the world! It was a perfect day at Haleiwa and everyone had a great time. After surfing, everyone in attendance enjoyed an amazing lunch. All of the groms walked away with huge smiles and a bunch of new heroes! Said Dusty, "I was really excited to share the day with a bunch of my friends and invite all of these kids out for a day at the beach to experience all of the things that make me happy. It was great to be able to show them that no matter the obstacle or setback, you can accomplish anything in life that you put your mind to."
Special thanks to the following people who helped make the day a success: Volcom, Nixon, Vertra, Pupukea Grill, Uncle Bryan's surf school, & Waiola Coconut water
