itself as "One of the best all girl surf shops in the world." The books will
be exclusively sold at Surfer Girl in
Kuta, Bali and all the proceeds will go to MUM.
On the east coast of Bali in
the region of Karangasem, there are villages that because of economic
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 the economic impact of the Bali Bombings
many people have found it hard to make ends meet.
MUM is an unified
charitable organization dedicated to helping villagers support the
needs of their children for education and new opportunities. For
approximately $70 dollars or 60 Euros a year a local child is aided with
their school fees, uniforms, materials and healthy food for a year.
While in Bali aside from
catching some classic Uluwatu surf author Tony
Garcia organized a book signing at Tubes one of Kuta's land mark surf
restaurants and meeting places. He presented signed copies of the
books to Made Piping editor of Magic Wave the Balinese surf community
