The main purpose of this event is to integrate local and overseas students, promoting entertainment and cultural exchange between surfers from different nationalities.

Excellent prizes will be up for grabs including a round trip ticket to Bali, 12 days at The Surfing Village, in Pasti, Sumatra, Indonesia, five days at MojoSurfm, in Raglan, New Zealand, MG Surfboards and more.

The prime venue for the event is Curl Curl Beach, however the event is mobile depending on surf conditions with Dee Why Beach, the backup venue.
