Save Trestles campaign rolls through North County

CARLSBAD — Spy Optic announced its continued efforts to raise funds for the Save Trestles Surfrider Foundation campaign through Spy Optic’s partnership with Spy team rider Mike Losness.
For the month of November, Losness’ 48-inch-by-36-inch mixed media canvas painting of Trestles will be on display at the California Surf Museum in Oceanside. The museum is also kicking off the first annual California Surf Festival celebrating Bruce Brown’s 50th anniversary Nov. 7 through Nov. 9.
Donations to the Surfrider Foundation’s Save Trestles campaign will be accepted online through Spy Optic’s Web site until Nov. 30. Each $5 donation buys a chance to win Losness’ painting and prize packs from his sponsors: Spy Optic, Body Glove, Adio and GFH Boards.
Mike’s painting tour this past summer throughout Southern California collected raffle ticket donations from local retail stops at Sun Diego, K-Five, Becker, Spyder, Surfside and ZJ Boarding House. All proceeds from the tour and through the end of November will be donated to the Surfrider Foundation.
“The California Surf Museum is pleased to host the painting and give the public an opportunity to view this unique work of art dedicated to the preservation of a historical surfing landmark,” California Surf Museum President Daryl Dick said.
