Surf for CF 2021

5x7 Surf for CF in a Box.png

"You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf!"

This year our annual Surf for CF surf contest looked a little different than past years. A few of our amazing teams took to the waves and created their own Surf for CF day. They captured their experiences and submitted these video...
Bowie’s Brigade including The 11th Street Crew: 

Longboards for Louisa:

Team Riolito:


After thoughtful deliberation with our Surf for CF Volunteer Leadership Team regarding the current Covid-19 status along with CFF’s event guideline updates, we have decided convert Surf for CF from an in-person event to a “Surf in a Box” concept that will run now through Friday, October 1, 2021.

The Surf for CF website is up and running for registration and fundraising. Participants that meet fundraising minimums will be mailed their "Surf in a Box" (Surf for CF branded rashguard included) and be eligible for incentive prizes along the way.
Though CFF is not holding an official in-person event, we hope you and your team will pick a day for your Surf for CF adventure!
