This coming Saturday it is Mark's birthday and it was requested that we as the West Coast Gliders go out and 1)celebrate Mark's birthday and 2)go out and support the Paddling community and a very brave young man by the name of Keane, who was unfortunately attacked by a Great White Shark....don't worry he's doing great! The event will be held at Saturday at 10am located at Moonlight Beach. Below is more information on the event:
Keane was bitten by an 11ft Great White Shark on 9/29/18 while lobster diving at Beacons Beach. He was just 13 years old. He sustained life threatening injuries, but due to miraculous work from local hero’s, First Responders and a solid community effort Keane survived.
Keane is thriving and hasn’t lost his love for the ocean. He is an incredible young man with an incredible story.
Bring your surf board, paddle board...whatever you want to ride out and celebrate his survival.
There will be music, vendors and a raffle.
A few things to note:
-This is a free event (everyone is welcome)
