Project Overview

SurfAid 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. SurfAid hosts annual SurfAid Cups at world class surf breaks globally, through these events they raise large amounts of money which goes to training in health, wellbeing and self-reliance of the island communities of Mentawais, Nias, Sumba & Sumbawa.

We had the privilege of covering the SurfAid Cup 2016 in Malibu, Ca. In doing so, we held the responsibility of video + photo production of the event and a social media take over for the weekend of the event. As we shot the event we had to immediately build our content calendar and copyright which made for a fast pace and multi dimensional project for our team.

Surfline Press Release

The quality, professionalism, and teamwork of this group was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had working with SurfAid. It was a true honor to work beside you all. I was in awe of the amount of talent and passion you all out into your work. The visual storytelling accomplished by our team this weekend has set the bar extremely high and elevated the SurfAid organization to a level it’s never seen before. The efforts of this team will greatly influence donors perception of SurfAid and I know your efforts have and will translate to fundraising dollars that will save lives.
