circumstances find it difficult to afford necessities for their children for
schooling and nutrition. The average yearly wage in Indonesia is
approximately $600 and because of economic downturn
many people have found it hard to make ends meet.
The aim of the
charity is to help Bali's orphans. The island's orphans will be aided with
school fees, uniforms, materials and healthy food.

saying? - "The book's action is non-stop - There will be no more boredom for
surfers after a long day at the beach or for those that are stuck far away

this the first of three surf thrillers. Author Tony Garcia makes good the
promise - The next best thing to being there!"
