SurfAid International asked Abel to create the artwork for the 2012 SurfAid Malibu Cup surfing event.  This art was used on various fundraising merchandise such as shirts, phone cases and a limited edition 24″x36″ poster (Sold Out). Abel was also a part of the Board Art Benefit where a select group of artists teamed up with a shaper and create a one-of-a-kind surfboard to auction off. Abel teamed up with Roberts Surfboards in Ventura, CA… who he started airbrushing surfboards for at 17 years old!
