Global Surf Industries Launches Life Is Better When You Surf® Scholarship Program


Global Surf Industries is launching the Life Is Better When You Surf® Scholarship Program

to promote the positive values around surfing and education.


The Life Is Better When You Surf® Scholarship Program will be awarding 30 kids, aged 10-

14 years old from across the United States of America, Australia and New Zealand, $1,000

(to be used for educational purposes) and two surfboards to each scholarship recipient.


The idea behind the scholarship is to give back to the surfing community, cultivate the

positive values of surfing and encourage academic involvement. The scholarships will be

awarded to kids who exemplify that Life Is Better When You Surf®, rather than focusing on

competitive achievements.


Mark Kelly, CEO and GSI Founder, says he wishes he started surfing earlier (he started

when he was 30!!) so he wants to give kids that chance. “Education in and out of the water is

so important that we want to encourage kids to progress in their surfing and at school.”


Applications are open for the USA citizens from September 18, 2017 – October 14, 2017

and successful applicants will be notified October 30, 2017. Applications for Australia and

New Zealand citizens open late 2017.

  • No Logos = Flat or Really Bad. Pretty much unrideable! A good time to get other things done.
  • 1 Logo = Rideable but not good form. Might not be worth the time or effort but there could be a few okay waves.
  • 2 Logos = Could be fun. Rideable and a few okay waves to be ridden.
  • 3 Logos = Fun! Better than the average day. Worth paddling out depending on the surface conditions.
  • 4 Logos = Really fun. Paddle out if you can. One of the better days of the year.
  • 5 Logos = Rare Epic or All Time conditions. Quitting work or skipping school is an option but not encouraged. Why are you still reading the report! Paddle out now!

Please read the report description for a better explanation of all factors regarding the waves. We report conditions in "A moment in time" and conditions can change right after the report or between reports. Don't kill the messenger. Email Mother Nature for changing the conditions if you miss it. Thanks for checking EILiveSurf.com. The only report in town that checks the surf 4 times daily with our feet in the sand during rain, sleet, snow, or shine.
