The Surfing Madonna Oceans Project has a new permanent home for the iconic surfing Madonna on Encinitas Blvd. complete with a Zen-like garden entitled the Surfing Madonna Park. People have the opportunity to purchase a brick, customize it and then place it in front of the Surfing Madonna. Proceeds from the bricks will go back to the community. “We will continue to fund our special needs surf school, youth scholarships, marine mammal rescue equipment, storm drain filtering projects, and provide funding for disadvantaged kids so they can attend Junior Life Guards,” noted Bob Nichols, Director of Operations for the Surfing Madonna Oceans Project.

As for the future plans of the project, brick paver parties at the Surfing Madonna Park will be held every few months. The organization is also actively seeking volunteers to assist with fundraising.
