Colorful surfers of all ages gathered at La Jolla Shores Saturday to attempt to break a world record for the most surfers on one wave at one time. The 1 Wave Challenge supports the Boys to Men Mentoring Network, a local charity that offers guidance for at-risk and fatherless boys.
On top of the surfing challenge, the event also hosted a 5K or 5-mile beach run to Blacks Beach and onto Torrey Pines Golf Course.
Boys to Men Mentoring is devoted to helping at-risk, young boys break the cycle of violence and crime that often characterized their childhood. Adult male role models lead weekly mentoring meetings, guiding a total of more than 700 boys.
