Over the years we've watched her bounce around from location to location. She was under the overpass on Encinitas Blvd, then she was in Mark Patterson's storage for a year, she moved to Cafe Ipe thanks to Keith Harrison and the owners of Cafe Ipe. Now she stands proudly across the street from her original location so all can view her and the Madonna can watch over and bless all that pass by her.
Now that the Surfing Madonna is back home, the mission of the non-profit (Surfing Madonna Oceans Project) is to use raised proceeds from the Surfing Madonna Run and Brick Paver Fundraiser to fund local community projects that benefit ocean conservation awareness, art and our youth in North County San Diego.
We hope the Surfing Madonna mosaic will help inspire people to re-think their actions and understand their role as powerful agents of change.
YOU can help reverse the serious degradation currently impacting the world's oceans and beaches.
The results we wish to see are healthier oceans and a stronger sense of community in our life time
