When Surfing For Hope hosts a World Surf League Qualifying Series surf contest, young California athletes are able to compete at the most important and recognizable events in their sport without having to leave the state or travel great distances. This also includes the ability to earn valuable WSL Qualifying Series points, compete against international athletes, and gain valuable competition experience. We believe that several annual WSL Qualifying Series events are needed for California's young athletes to maintain the same level of performance taking place around the world in other surfing regions. Being able to compete in multiple events per year in California builds an athlete's self-esteem and skill levels while remaining affordable as a local sport where they can drive to each event.
