About Surf for CF

Join the CFF San Diego and Hawaii Chapter for the 7th Annual Surf for CF Event! The event includes a U15 short board competition, our "foamies only" surf team competition and free surf lessons for people living with cystic fibrosis.

Why Surfing

There are many positive aspects of the ocean and surfing lifestyle - mental, emotional and physical – for which people living with cystic fibrosis can benefit. Did you know that surfers played a role in the development of hypertonic saline, an important treatment for those living with cystic fibrosis? Inhaling salt water re-hydrates the lining of the lungs and loosens the thick mucus that builds up, thus reducing recurrent infections alongside its associated lung damage and respiratory failure.  This relationship between CF and surfing sparked the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s San Diego team to create the country’s first Surf for CF.
