Manhattan Beach, Ca - (March, 2011)We’re back…The 2nd Annual Kick4Humanity soccer tournament will be held at San Juan Capistrano Sports Complex on Saturday, May 21, 2011.  This charity event brings the surf industry together to battle it out on the soccer field in support of a great cause – SurfAid International.  It’s an awesome opportunity for people from the surf industry to get together, spend a fun day in the sun and raise much needed funds for SurfAid International.

Last year’s tournament featured teams such as RVCA, Jedidiah, Endemic, Volcom, Firewire Surfboards, SurfShot, SURFER Magazine, Transworld Business, So Cal SK8 & Surf and Laguna Surf & Sport, & Primo.

“We are excited to have the support of the surf community at our Kick4Humanity event again in 2011.  Each team represents supporters who are essential to achieving our humanitarian work in the Mentawai Islands.”  - Randal Schober, Executive Director, SurfAid International USA.

“As part of our annual community program we wanted surf companies to involve their employees in a worthy cause, while having fun. We wanted to put on an event that raised funds and awareness for SurfAid International in a fun way. We are very excited for this year’s tournament!” – Monica Staniec, VP of Marketing, iMa
