Walden Surfboards Gets Inked for Great Cause

La Jolla, California – Steve Walden Surfboards and the artists of the TLC channel television series "Miami Ink" have partnered to create a one-of-a-kind tattooed surfboard to be auctioned at the UCSD Cancer Center Luau & Longboard Invitational.

"Miami Ink's" Ami James and Tim Hendricks hand painted a 9-foot Walden Magic model surfboard to be auctioned off at the Cancer Center event on Sunday, August 20. The Luau & Longboard Invitational includes a surf contest featuring some of the sport’s legendary surfers as well as a post-competition luau. The event brings together the biggest names in surfing and San Diego’s business community in an effort to raise money for cancer research.

The TLC channel documented the meeting between Steve Walden and the Miami Ink crew, as well as the board painting process. TLC will film at the Luau & Longboard event as the board is auctioned off. The “Miami Ink” program is anticipated to air on TLC in September.

Walden is hoping that the “Tattoo'd” surfboard will raise more money than Walden's 2005 donation of a Lance Armstrong LIVESTRONG surfboard signed by Lance himself. The Armstrong board sold for $27,500, the most ever paid for a new surfboard.

For more information about tickets and event activities, contact the Moores UCSD Cancer Center at (858) 822-0023, or visit the Luau’s Web site at www.longboardluau.org.
