Surf-Loving Stars Unite for Surf-Athon Event, Helping Gulf

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

hollywoodnews.com: “Hollywood Dreams” star Tanna Frederick reports that Gregory Harrison will be among the hard-core surfers riding the waves in the after-midnight hours tonight (6/19) night at Huntington Beach during the Third Annual Project SOS: Surf 24.

Other famous surf-loving dudes and dudettes involved include “True Blood’s” Sam Trammel, “House’s” Jesse Spencer, “24’s” Eric Balfour, Zoe Bell of “Grindhouse,” one-time “Baywatch” hunk David Chokachi, Sean Patrick Flanery, Chad Lowe, and Tanna herself. The flame-tressed beauty tells us the event “has turned into something I never dreamed could possibly happen. This year, in light of the situation in the Gulf, it’s especially inspiring and hopeful.”

Heal the Bay, Inside the Outdoors, and the Surfrider Foundation are beneficiaries of the fundraiser. Frederick says, “We’re going to be announcing our next project, the Save Our Surf Gulf Alert, going down to the Gulf and volunteering – a grassroots, hands-on activity to create change.” For more information, visit http://www.projectsaveoursurf.org/ .

Frederick says she and her cofounders, surfing champs Shaun Tomson and PT Townend, aimed to “take the artistic element brought in by Hollywood and the surf culture of Huntington Beach, toss them together and see what colors we get” when they started the event. It’s grown exponentially since then. The centerpiece is its 24-hour surf-athon with pros and amateurs being judged by a panel before a crowd of thousands. The pier will be lit up all through the night. There’s an eco-ocean fair. The surfer hangout Duke’s is staying open overnight to accommodate visitors.
