NKF Pro-Am Surfing events all are based on the life story of Richard K. Salick, along with his brother Phil, whom founded this festival we’re all attending this weekend as a charity toward raising money towards the National Kidney Foundation. NKF helps facilitate wellness through working towards solutions fighting kidney disease.
This is the 33rd annual event held at Cocoa Beach Pier. This year, unlike last year, we have decent waves! Due to a SE swell component outside of the Bahamas shadow for Cocoa Beach.
