If you’re thinking to yourself “What the hell is Movember?” here’s a quick description: a Mo (slang for moustache) + November (the current month) = Movember. The crew at SBC Wake are joining the growing club of modern gentlemen who believe in the virtues of fine moustachery, immaculate grooming and growing moustaches for Movember. We are looking for like-minded ladies and gentlemen to join us to change the face of men’s health.

Movember is about raising funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer. Close to 4,400 men die of prostate cancer in Canada each year and one in six men will be diagnosed during his lifetime. It’s time we did something about this.

The more people we can get on board, the more lives we can impact. We are asking you to join us and either grow a moustache as a Mo Bro, or join as a Mo Sista to help recruit other gentlemen.

We hope you join us to change the face of men’s health.

Now that we’ve got the public service annoucement out of the way, here comes the part you really want to know. In celebration of Movember and in a tribute to Mr. Aaron Reed, the best stache in the wake industry, we’re giving away an a pair of DVS/Obscura collabo shoes and a copy of the newest Obscura team movie, Washed Up Before We Were Has Beens, to the best Movember moustache. And if you’re thinking you don’t have shot at the prizes because you can’t grow a killer Mo, we’ll give you a hint that creativity counts.


Don’t shave your upper lip from today until November 30th and then snap a picture of your prized stache and send it to letters@sbcwakeboard.com – the official cutoff date for entries is Friday Dec 3rd. We’ll be chosing the winner and posting the photo on our website. And remember, creativity counts!

Ready, set, GROW!
