The SurfAid Cup is the signature fundraiser for SurfAid globally.

The first competition was held in 2011 and has grown to include two events in Australia and four in the US.

The SurfAid Cup is a tag-team surf competition open to long or short boarders who raise funds in order to compete. Each team is made up of four amateurs and one pro.

The team that raises the most money gets the first pick from an impressive line-up of pros and local legends.
