Surf for CF 2020



Join the CFF San Diego Team for the 5th Annual Surf for CF Event!


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 hyper-tonic 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 event in 2016. Hosted at La Jolla Shores, this two-part event will feature surf lessons for CF heroes (children and adults with CF) and an open-registration team style surf contest on foamies.


Sign up for the surf contest…

     - Team Leaders, click “Start a Team” above

     - Team Members, click “Join a Team” above

     - Individual Surfers, click “Register as an Individual” (individual surfers will be placed with other individuals or incomplete teams closer to event date).

 NOTE: There are two options when registering, “Surfer” and “Virtual Surfer”- Surfers [bold] are one of the four people surfing on the team, while Virtual Surfers [bold] are teammates who want to show support for the team through fundraising efforts.


-There is a maximum of (4) four surfers to compete per team. Each surfer must pay a registration fee and commit to a fundraising minimum of $100.

 -There is no limit to the amount of “virtual surfers” per team. These are team mates who want to show support through fundraising efforts for the team. There is no registration fee and no fundraising minimum for virtual surfers.

 -The contest will be judged on a point system. The three teams with the highest points at the end of the open rounds will advance to the Finals to compete for the Championship.

 - PLEASE REMEMBER:  This is a Foamies Only surf competition.  PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN FOAM BOARD TO SURF.

 Every individual, surfer or virtual surfer, who raises $150 or more will receive a 2020 Surf for CF t-shirt and a ticket to the Surf for CF Pre-party on Saturday, September 12th!
