RESULTS ARE IN!
Pictured above: Aaron “Bogy” Bogushefsky, extremely talented local OC, NJ artist, states that there’s more than meets the eye in this one! 1) Got Peter Dooley on the left (2) White gull for hope (3) Turned away flower on left side for those who have died from amyloidosis (4) the orange flower on the left is different from the rest and meant for Chip (5) the bee on the right for the spirit of those who have passed on Not sure why i thought of these as I was doing it but might be cool for those who are in the know.
Come join the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation (CMAF) and local NJ pro, Rob Kelly on Friday July 29th, 2016 for the 13th Annual Chip Miller Surf Fest! This grass-roots family event, hosted in Ocean City, NJ has grown to be one of the largest surf events on the East Coast attracting some of the biggest names in surfing such as, Bethany Hamilton, Brad Gerlach and Rob Machado. Local NJ pros have also joined in the fun: Dean Randazzo, Sam Hammer, Andrew Gesler and Matt Keenan.
The Surf Fest and the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation were created in 2004 in memory of Chip Miller, who proudly raised his family in Ocean City. Chip was known worldwide for his passion for Corvettes and resilient positive attitude. In 2003, Chip was diagnosed with a rare disease called Amyloidosis, which occurs when abnomal protein, called amyloid, builds up in one or more organs causing malfunction. Just a few short months after diagnosis, the world lost an incredibly special person. The foundation needs your help to prevent this from happening to others. Grab your surfboard, catch a wave for a great cause and help spread the word!!
Other great activities that will be going on for the day at 7th Street during the contest:
- Plenty of the latest and greatest from surfing manufactures such as clothing, surfboards, sun glasses and etc.

We are proud to announce that all the proceeds raised at this years event will go directly to help Pete Dooley, former Natural Art board shaper. It’s extremely rare to find someone with a form of amyloidosis that has a positive chance to recover and Pete does with the proper treatment & care. If you are in New Jersey this summer stop by and check out the contest and be sure to say hello to Pete Dooley providing he’s healthy enough to make the event. We’re eager to show him what Jersey can do if we all come together to help his fight against amyloid. Let’s make a difference! If you would like to donate anything for the auction/raffle it would be greatly appreciated or make a direct donation online. Our goal is to help Pete get back on his feet and back to his normal life. We appreciate your continued support and so does Pete!
