What is S.A.L.S.A.?

SALSA is a surf competition that helps raise funds for the ALS Association. The ALS Association will use the funds to research cures for Lou Gehrig's disease and for patients who have Lou Gehrig's disease.

What is A.L.S.?

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a fatal neuromuscular disease that can strike anyone without warning.
