Dear Friends of Wrightsville Beach Longboard Association,

We at WBLA are excited by the possibilities of 2021 and how we, with your support, can advance our vision for a healthy coastal culture by promoting surfing as a positive lifestyle, engaging in the surrounding community, and advocating for a healthy ocean, ultimately building a stronger coastal community.

Today we are asking for your financial support for our important work.

WBLA’s founding members identified a need for the camaraderie they found in the ocean to expand to the shores, as some fellow surfers were facing rough waters in their lives. By coming together, they were able to lift their fellow surfers up during troubled times.

Throughout the years, WBLA has not only continued to spread the stoke among surfers in the Wrightsville Beach area by having fun together but have also continued to assist families in need – with meals, financial support, and educational scholarships.

We are so grateful to be part of a community where businesses, organizations, and individuals take such an active role in protecting and enhancing the surfing culture here. Your sponsorship of our 17th Annual WBLA Pro-Am Longboard Surf Contest will ensure that we will be able to continue engaging in our community.

Please join our growing list of sponsors by selecting one of the sponsorship options outlined in the enclosed Pledge Form and make plans to join us on October 16th for our 17th Annual WBLA Pro-Am Longboard Surf Contest where we will have fun competing and spreading the stoke.

Yours in deep appreciation,
Laura Shearin
and the Members of WBLA
