My congratulations to Montecito-Based former world champion surfer Shaun Tomson, who is receiving the Community Hero Award in San Diego next month at the 25th anniversary gala of Boys to Men Mentoring.

For nine years, Shaun, 67, has participated in the 100 Wave Challenge as an ambassador, an event I have covered annually in these pages.

The organization, founded in 1996, helps youngsters growing up without a father or a positive male mentor in their lives.

In San Diego County alone, more than 12,000 boys and men have participated in the program from 1996 to 2019. Currently, it serves more than 800 boys on a weekly basis at 35 school locations.
