Our very own Dan Brooks was given a lifetime achievement award this past weekend at the King Of The Hill Surf Contest in Neptune Beach. Most people around the beach know “DB” and the impact that he has and has had on the Jacksonville Beach community. Whether it’s fundraising for a local charity or sponsoring local beach clean ups, he is always the guy that is there TO GIVE BACK. Sunrise has been a staple in the Jacksonville surf scene, and DB is the driving force behind that.
DB was given the 2017 King Of The Hill Lifetime Achievement Award for exemplary ambassadorship for the sport of surfing. We couldn’t agree more. Thank you KOTH surf competition and Neptune Beach Baptist for putting on a great event this past weekend. Other notable mentions: ALVIN FARMER and ROGER WOOD as Surfing Pioneers and LYNN SINGLETON for female surf pioneer! Congratulations guys.
