Always advocating for a cleaner surf industry, Rerip also hosts local events and awareness campaigns for surf and environmental education.
No one does events like Wade Koniakowsky. Sometimes he is turning used surfboards into legendary pieces of art, other times he is using multiple pieces of boards to create a canvas, and most recently he and Norm Daniels painted a double-sided painting and the 4th Annual Future of Surfing. All of the monies raised by Wade at Rerip events he donates to local Charities, including the Solana Beach Junior Lifeguards, The San Diego Center for Children, and the Rob Machado Foundation.

Cherrie recently worked with Rerip and The San Diego Center for Children to create this piece for the Junior Seau Foundation.
