Who We Are and What We Do
We are a dedicated club sport, traveling for competitions while keeping focused on our academics, jobs, and internships. Each year we compete in seven Conference competitions and a Regional competition at New Smyrna Beach, completing our year-long season with the National competition at Salt Creek in California.
This past year we placed 10th out of the 14 schools that made it to Nationals. Over the past six years we have been ranked among the top 10 teams in the nation four times. We want to do better, and this is why we are looking for support from sponsors, the community, and alumni. We want to declare every year that we are one of the top 10 surf schools in the nation, with the impressive academics of Florida Tech on our resumes. Unlike many of the other schools that compete, we do not actively recruit surfers or offer scholarships; we do it purely out of love for the sport and the ocean, and what it means to us.
Our Goal and Your Donation
Our mission is to excel in our performance at competitions as well as increase our presence and visibility on the Florida Tech Campus and the community. Funding is a very important key to our success, and your donation will help ease some of the financial burden of competing. The total cost to take a full team of 10 students to the National competition in California is over $12,500. Your gift of any amount is appreciated and will not only reach our team but also the Florida Tech community, the local community, and beyond!
Be on the lookout for upcoming events in partnership with the Florida Tech Alumni Association and local businesses. To stay up to date with the Surf Team, find us on Instagram and Facebook. To view photos of our 2015 trip to Nationals, click here.
