On Tuesday May 12th, 2009, Dano held a surf-a-thon at Blackies. It started at 9am to 11am. At the final horn, Dano caught his 80th wave. With Jay's brother James and fellow surfer Steve keeping track of the wave count, 3 year old Stuart Jeremias allowed them to have a few chocolate cookies on the house to hold them over till lunch time. An amazing contribution from Rich Knight who not only sold hats from his work and donated the money, he also donated $10 a wave! A total of $800. Everyone was baffled by the generosity and the Thomas family can't say thank you enough to him and all those who donated and participated in getting the signatures they needed to make this a very successful surf-a-thon. Special thanks to Laylan Connelly at the Orange County Register and also to The Daily Pilot who did amazing stories on the event and did a great job with the information provided in each article. And a special thank you goes out to Dan Forte, the surf-a-thon would not have been as successful with out his motivation, determination and sheer perseverance to make this event a tremendous success. Here are a few photos from the event taken by Tom Cozad at newportsurfshots.com
