San Diego, CA (June 5th, 2003) – To coincide with their show in San Diego, all the members of Pearl Jam will autograph a custom 6’6″ twinzer fish surfboard from PSG Manufacturing, Kane Gardens and local radio station 94.9FM. This surfboard will be auctioned off on Ebay and ALL the proceeds will be donated to the San Diego Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation. This is an awesome gesture by Pearl Jam whose previous efforts on the MOM Projects (Music for our Mother Ocean 1, 2 & 3) have helped raise awareness for the Foundation. In addition to the signatures, the board design will contain the Surfrider logo.
