100 Wave Challenge

100 wave boys3

WE DID IT! Together, we rode the waves and raised over $230,000 for Boys to Men Mentoring.

You still have time to move the needle and earn some awesome individual and team prizes. Fundraising pages will remain open until October 31st, so keep on riding the wave for Boys to Men and reach out to your family and friends.

The 100 Wave Challenge is an annual surf-a-thon event that welcomes hundreds of surfers committed to empowering teenage boys of the San Diego community. Each surfer attempts to catch 100 waves in one day and raise $1,000 or more to support Boys to Men Mentoring, a San Diego based nonprofit organization providing consistent group mentoring to hundreds of fatherless, disconnected, and at-risk teenage boys. The 100 Wave Challenge is Boys to Men’s largest annual fundraising event.

WAVE BREAKING NEWS: This year's event is back to our BIG single day event and will take place on at Mission Beach on Saturday, September 16th, 2023. This year’s theme is WE'RE BETTER TOGETHER and is all about celebrating our 100 Wave surf community coming back together again after three years of navigating through a different kind of world.

  • Join us as an individual surfer and attempt to raise $1,000 or more. You can also choose to team up with your favorite 100 Wave crew or start your own team.
  • Not a surfer? No problem. Register to be a Surf Angel and create your own fundraising page. And be sure to invite friends and family to support our surfers on September 16th!
  • Spread the word about 100 Wave by handing out our new business card-sized flyers with QR codes. To get a batch, please email Angelique at development@boystomen.org.
  • If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor or vendor, please reach out to Joe at Joe@boystomen.org for more information.

Please register and join us on Saturday, September 16th for good surf, good vibes and good times…. C’mon!.


The 100 Wave Challenge provides over 55% of annual revenue for B2M. This funding directly supports year round programming and services to hundreds of our boys and their families. This year, we have the opportunity to expand our programs into more schools, collaborate with other non-profits and work with government agencies to provide a broader impact in our community.

Thank You to Our Sponsors
