Surfers for Autism 2011 Special Edition Limited Prints

This year based a little on popular demand and also me wanting to do something different, I came up with a SFA special edition print series.  As many of you know I cover all of the Surfers for Autism Events, giving them photo coverage and also new this year, Gopro as well.  Spicing it up, I threw in a Limited print series that will feature a print of mine representing each event that will be sold during the event at the raffle / merchandise tent.  The prints are matted, signed and packaged and sell for $30.  Surfers for Autism gets 50%.  With 4 events already in the books we have already nearly sold out at every event.  Get your print today and support SFA!  Here are the last 4 from Deerfield, Juno, Stuart, and Cocoa.
