Eddie Bertrand signed longboard up for auction

Submitted by reventlos on March 11, 2012.

Surf Scene News

Eddie Bertrand signed longboard up for auction on eBay!

This very special 9'0" longboard, graciously donated by Irvin Surfboards of Huntington Beach, was the grand prize raffle item at the Benefit for Eddie Bertrand, held last winter. For those not aware, Eddie was one of the pioneers of SoCal surf music, both with the seminal Belairs and Eddie and the Showmen. Eddie is battling severe health problems, and I was thrilled to be a part of his benefit, and doubly fortunate to win the raffle for surfboard. Check out some highlights from the concert.

The board is in perfect condition and is a work of art in and of itself. It's been signed not only by Eddie Bertrand, but by all the performers --- first, second, and third-wavers --- who came together to help out a brother. This board has been a proud part of my decor for the last year, but it is time to put it to work to further assist Eddie with his medical bills. This auction is proceeding with Eddie's knowledge and approval, and 100% of the proceeds will be forwarded to Eddie at its conclusion. PLEASE step up to the plate for a most worthy cause. Local pick-up preferred, but if you are willing to bid to help Eddie, we'll work something out. Thank you for looking, please place your bid now!

I have a great idea but I don't know how to do it. I'll chip in a hundred dollars towards buying this board. If people keep chipping money quickly enough, even in tens and twenties, we'll raise plenty sure. Someone just has to receive and hold the money and do the bidding. If we win the auction I propose Eddie's board be placed in an appropriate surf/surf music museum. If we don't win this time we can either keep accumulating funds toward another auction or let Eddie use it as necessary.

I can't afford to buy any of Eddie's memorabilia as much as I'd love to (well maybe some little things but nothing that would really help) but together we can do a lot. If I'm out of line just tell me, but I think we can do this if we try.

Ideas? Comments?
