Help Support The Organista Family in their quest to rebuild after losing their home in the Thomas Fire while being uninsured.

Mike Organista was born and raised in Carpinteria, California. From his early youth he has enjoyed the surfing lifestyle, and found his rhythm in the ocean and playing music. He has been the lead singer and songwriter for local band, “The Upbeat” for the last 33 years. A father of four, with one on the way, he is a devoted family man, and loves his community.

In the late 1990’s Mike bought a ranch on Rincon Mountain achieving his goal of owning in his hometown. He built his home with his two hands and has been living on the mountain full time for the last four years completely sustainable and off the grid with electricity from solar panels.

In December 2017 the Thomas Fire destroyed his family home on Rincon Mountain. Unfortunately, his home and the belongings that were left behind were not insured. Our goal through the 2018 Channel Islands Surfboards raffle, and auction is to help raise funds to support the Organista family and provide some relief during their struggle.
