    UPDATE: March 18, 2020

    Amid the growing concerns of the Coronavirus and travel restrictions being imposed by numerous countries Rotary International has officially announced that the 2020 Convention in Honolulu has been cancelled.  This was an extremely difficult decision however the health of our members worldwide and safety of all participants in the numerous events is most important.  An email communication to all who registered is going out this evening and we will advise at a later date when a similar event may be organized.  Again, we will continue to make every effort to ensure that all Surfers Unite Rotarian Fellowship events follow our mission of creating fun and relevant events and socials for the family of Rotary.  There will be plenty of other opportunities to do this event at a future Rotary Convention.

    Brett Morey, Founder of Surfers Unite Rotarian Fellowship

    With the support of the HOC and Rotary International here is what we have planned for the June 4th Paddle Out to End Polio event.  Believe us you will want to be a part of Rotary history:

    We are creating a large 30’ diameter End Polio Now banner to float on the water and a fun Paddle Out to End Polio event on Thursday, June 4, 2020 to raise funds and awareness for the End Polio Now campaign.  What's involved?  Rotarians, Rotaractors, Interactors, family & friends paddling out at Waikiki on surfboards, SUP boards and for those requiring extra assistance Outriggers.  We will form a huge circle surrounding the End Polio Now banner floating on the ocean and a drone will capture it all including those gathered on the shoreline to throw leis and cheer everyone on.  It will be magical and it defines what makes Surfers Unite Rotarian Fellowship so meaningful to so many around the globe.  Sign up today and we will keep you in the loop concerning board rentals, donations directly to End Polio Now etc.  Lot's to come so stay connected.

    Make your donations to the End Polio Now campaign at:

    Currently we are working with Dive Oahu at Canoes to secure the best package deals possible.  Surfers Unite will also be incurring the costs of the insurance, permit fees and other related costs while creating some cool gear for this event.  Your Lifetime Membership and support will make this historic event possible.  We are so thankful for those who are signing up early to support our vision for this event and hope you will join us as well.  Please read our disclaimer below as safety is our first priority for any Surfers Unite event.

    Disclaimer: Safety is paramount in all that we do. Only strong swimmers are advised to go into the water. If you are not in excellent health or have other considerations please join those on the sand to support the event as a volunteer or participant in the umbrella areas (paid registration required). If you prefer to ride in an outrigger with a life vest please register accordingly. We will have a safety briefing before paddling out. If conditions are not deemed safe for any reason we reserve the right to cancel this event, no refunds are guaranteed. Please note, if equipment is reserved in advance we may be able to work with our vendors to offer a credit during your stay. Social media will be updated throughout the event and the days leading up to it. We will also correspond with all registrants via email with weather and wave updates to ensure a fun, safe and successful event.

    Lastly, Once registered you will be directed to complete the following waiver for Dive Oahu online at:  Please complete this waiver as it will be required before retrieving a longboard or SUP board and entering the water at the event.

    The 16th Annual Switchfoot BroAM Beachfest Event scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 27, 2020 at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas has been cancelled.

Santheim and Aqualia International Foundation to form COVID-19 Relief.  By donating on the link below your contribution will be matched dollar for dollar...up to $1M for Feeding San Diego.  How awesome is that?
