Many of the kids have never been to the beach let alone ride a wave!  The Jimmy Miller Foundation combined forces with the Just Keep Livin Foundation for an end of the year school event for local Los Angeles High School students.  They provided the students with six different stations which taught the kids how to surf, body surf, Ocean safety, nutrient, Yoga, Ocean Ecology and a beach clean up. The event took place at El Porto Beach in Manhattan Beach.

Presented by the Dig for Kids Education Foundation & Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation
Surfing and volleyball are two of most famous South Bay activities and are integral to two great non-profit foundations in our community and the high school friends who inspired the creation of each foundation.

Jimmy Miller and Eric Fonoimoana grew up together surfing and playing volleyball with their friends and family at the beach. They both played on one of the greatest Mira Costa High School volleyball teams in its long history and put their dedication and efforts into the sports they love. Jim’s love of surfing led to world travels and the creation of a surf school in Manhattan Beach. Eric’s love and dedication to beach volleyball led to successful career as an AVP pro and an Olympic Gold Medal.

However, up until The Surf N Turf there had never been an event that encompasses the friendly and family style spirit of these two great beach sports. The Dig for Kids and the Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundations are proud to present the 2013 Dig 4 Jimmy Surf N’ Turf Surfing and Volleyball Invitational.

We are taking the spirit of the Jimmy Surf Fiesta and mixing it with the great team volleyball tournaments that we all enjoy through the summer. The goal is to have the surfers playing volleyball and the volleyball players surfing together and to invite all levels of surfing and volleyball skills to come down to the beach to enjoy a day of friends, hula dancing, family and good times. Limited spaced available to please register as soon as possible. Online registration will guarantee your spot.south

Dig 4 Kids and The Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation joined forces and pulled off a fantastic, family-friendly event that combined three exciting venues: surfing, volleyball (hence the Surf N Turf moniker), and most importantly, awareness and support for these two great organizations. The mission of Dig 4 Jimmy Surf N Turf event was simple: get surfers of all ability levels playing volleyball and vice versa while at the same time promoting healthy fun in the sun with friends and family. Mission accomplished!! The event was held at the Manhattan Beach Pier.
