I donated these two fishies to the Surfrider San Diego Chapter Annual Gala on May 10.  It’s already sold out or I’d tell you to get your butt down there and bid on some art.   Thanks to Sector 9 for kicking down the boards to paint on… stoked to have a line coming out with them soon, more on that later.
