The following elite clubs have committed to the event and with limited space available, we encourage you to apply immediately.

After months of constant planning, and one postponement after another, we can no longer deny our kids the competition and college exposure they so desperately need.  As an organization, we’ve tried everything to get the State of California to reopen competitive youth sports and to date, nothing has worked.

Rather than continuing to plan in futility, we’ve spent the past few days talking with College Coaches and some of the best clubs in the country and the message we received was clear – it’s time for Surf Cup!!!

That said, we’re proud to announce the San Diego Surf Cup is relocating for one year.  We are excited to announce Surf Cup – Phoenix.   Our players and coaches need dates to look forward to and a quality event from a brand they can count on, so we called our friends in Arizona and they rolled out the red carpet.  We finally have dates and venues secured in a state that has already Returned to Play!

Come join us as some of the top clubs in the country gather once again to compete to be the “The Best of the Best” but this time…..we’re in the desert!
