Daytime Radness to Raise Money for Pechonis Family

On Friday, October 24 Island Water Sports will present Daytime Radness to celebrate the local surf and skate culture while raising funds for the family of Deerfield Beach resident Phil Pechonis, who lost his battle to bladder cancer last month. Proceeds will help pay Phil’s medical bills and help support his wife Megan and their four children; Max (18), Zach (16), Katie (12) and Alex (10). Formerly a pastor at Calvary Chapel and Island Water Sports manager back in the 90s, Phil lived his life to the fullest. He was a walking example on how to live a just life.

In its fourth year, Daytime Radness has raised over $40,000, which was donated to local residents who are faced with hardships and financial troubles. The event, which runs from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., will feature pro surfers and skaters signing autographs, the Vans half pipe and the Road to Radness street course, interactive experiences with surf and skate brands like Quiksilver, Gopro, Volcom, Roxy and Vans, raffle prizes including surfboards, Miami Heat tickets, Dolphins tickets, sunglasses, skateboards, beach getaways and more.

Fundraising activities will include sales inside the store, raffles, silent auction, and a skate contest. For information or to donate visit
