What is Surf Select?

The Surf Select program brings together the most talented players and coaches from all of Surf Nation to compete together under the Surf banner at the highest levels and in front of college coaches and professional scouts.

Through a series of local, regional and national events, players within Surf Nation, will be selected to represent the club in national and international competitions.

Surf Select ID Events 2021-22 Season

The first selection for our 2022 program happens at the club level, with the Directors of Coaching submitting player recommendations to Surf Nation.

Players are then invited to regional and national ID events. These consist of 2-3 day training weekends or residential camps, where players have the opportunity to showcase their talent in front of the Surf Select coaches.

These events also include off field education for our players, helping to instill the Surf core values and style of play!
