Randazzo Family Vacay


If you're not familiar with the Dean Randazzo saga, it's a long and legendary tale that involves an underdog struggle to get to the World Tour in the 90s, four major bouts with Hodgkins Disease, numerous competitive comebacks, and his own charitable organization which has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to relive families of cancer patients.

Recently, the whole familiglia Randazzo did a little trip to Barbados. It is the first time they've gotten away together since brother Joe Randazzo gave Dean his stem cells in his last cancer battle. Here's a look at a Randazzo family vacation, starring the brothers as well as some of the more colorful characters from Barbados. As you can see, the man is still in some form. The video is by Chris Gabriel.

There is a full feature on Randazzo in this month's Surfer Mag by Kimball Taylor. Also, for those of you who wear funny pants and live near the Jersey Shore, the Dean Randazzo Cancer Foundation will be holding its 7th Annual Golf for A Cause at the Mays Landing Golf and Country Club on Saturday. There are still open slots here.
