The Videos Are In!

We’ve received so many fun videos of everyone enjoying the waves. Now, you can help us raise money for Outdoor Outreach by viewing our top 5 favorite videos as many times as you would like—we’re donating $1 per view up to $2,500!

The San Diego-area creator who submitted the video with the most views will get a custom surfboard from San Diego’s Solid Surfboards!

By participating in Surfing For Smiles, you make a difference in the lives of San Diego youth and help young people discover what they’re capable of.

View video submissions now through July 10, 2022, and we’ll announce the creator with the most video views in mid to late July.

Since 1999, Outdoor Outreach has connected 17,000 young people with opportunities to share new experiences and build a support system of peers and mentors who believe in them. This incredible organization connects our youth with their world to inspire, explore, and show that they matter.

You can make a donation directly to Outdoor Outreach here.

Show your support by watching the videos from our surfing community below. Each video you view supports Outdoor Outreach and gets one video creator closer to receiving a custom surfboard.


"I love going to Ocean Beach dog park to practice catching waves! I just started learning to surf, and it's one of my favorite things to do now. This video was MY FIRST WAVE EVER! Learning more and getting better are my goals for the summer. I'll be attending my first surf camp soon, and I can't wait! Surf's Up y'all!"
