Blast from the past: 1960’s surfing matches current fundraising needs in Long Beach Island

    It may have felt like the 1960’s Saturday in Long Beach Island Township, but surfers were riding the waves for a well known modern cause.

    Dozens of surfers hit the waves as part of the Annual Longboard Classic, which benefits Alliance for a Living Ocean, a nonprofit organization that works to keep the ocean and bay waters thriving.

    The Press of Atlantic City reports surfers took to the waves on vintage longboards from the 65th Street beach in Brant Beach.

    In addition to Alliance for a Living Ocean, several other nonprofits were also on hand for the event, according to the Press of Atlantic City.
