About this event
The Tenth Annual Surfing for Hope Longboard Contest Weekend will take place on October 2, 2021 in Pismo Beach, California. This event is designed to help inspire people challenged by cancer through the positive energy of surfing.
This Year’s Line Up
The Longboard Surf Contest (Saturday, Oct. 2, starting at 8:00am) is upgraded to Pro-Am status. As always it is open to all ages and includes a variety of divisions, including our highly competitive costumed “Pure Stoke” team heat.
The Cancer Resource Health Fair (Saturday, Oct. 2, 10:00 – 2:00pm) features businesses and local groups providing support, education, and help to individuals and their families currently going through the cancer experience. Free food and entertainment by local bands throughout the day.
Gala Dinner and Auction (Friday, Oct. 1, 5:00 – 8:00pm) Avila Beach Community Center, 191 San Miguel St, Avila Beach, CA. Due to unforeseen circumstances we have moved our venue for the October 1, 2021 Gala Dinner and Auction to the Avila Beach Community Center. We understand you may have purchased tickets advertised at an outdoor venue. If you have any concerns about the indoor location and need to cancel we are offering a full refund. We have downsized and added full vaccination requirements and hope you will still be able to join us. Masks when not eating will be encouraged. If you would like a refund due to this change please contact us.
The 2021 Memorial Paddle Out (Friday, Oct 1, 4:00pm – 5:00pm) IN AVILA BEACH, CA (North side of Avila Beach Yacht Club) is an excellent opportunity to connect with others effected by cancer and those participating in our 2021 event.
