    I’m thrilled to be part of Best Day because I cannot think of a better way of spending my time than helping bring more joy to children.

    Became involved with Best Day after seeing it positively affect a young sibling. Stoked to bring that same magic to San Diego!

    Seeing the smile on a child’s face after their first wave, and telling  them “You’re a Surfer Now” – well, I get choked up just  thinking about that, knowing we might be helping that child have their “Best Day”!
