Both old school athletes and some of the freshest surfers on the scene will be headed to Malibu’s famous first point to participate in the 2013 SurfAid Cup. SurfAid International is a non-profit humanitarian organization whose aim is to improve the health, wellbeing and self-reliance of people living in isolated regions connected to us through surfing.
Competitors get the chance to surf the classic Malibu pointbreak, with a pro surfer/legend on their team, and only a few people in the water. Teams aim to raise at least $5,000 for SurfAid and, in order of their fundraising total, each team picks a pro/legend surfer to join them, for a total of five surfers per team. The tag-team SurfAid Cup is part of the MSA Classic Invitational, which is presented by the Malibu Surfing Association from September 6th – 8th.

Three-time ASP world champion Tom Curren and Big Wave World Tour Champion Greg Long are confirmed to compete in this year’s SurfAid Cup in Malibu, California, on Saturday September 7th, 2013 in benefit of the humanitarian organization known as SurfAid International.
“Sharing the lineup with my surfing heroes and a few good friends, and all to support and bring awareness to the amazing work that SurfAid does in Indonesia, sounds like a dream,” Greg Long said. “Plus pouring and sharing a few drinks and laughs the evening before at the Benefit Night at Duke’s Malibu doesn’t sound too bad either.”
Besides Curren and Long, ASP world tour surfer Travis Logie, former world longboard champions Joel Tudor and Jen Smith, and artist/shaper Tyler Warren have confirmed that they will compete this year.
