SNZ x Surfline Next Wave Grant

Does your club have an amazing story to tell, a project in need of a kickstart, or some tired equipment that needs some tender loving care?

Entries are now open for the Surfline Next Wave Grant. Submit your entry and get into the running for a share of our $5,000 prize purse.

First prize will take home $3,5000 for their club, while our runner up will win $1,500.

All you need to do is tell us in 500 words or less why your club deserves the grant and what you’d do with the prize money. Include an image that captures the essence of the club, or get creative and submit a 30-second video to go with your entry.
