The Board members of Stoke for Life Foundation, the competition committee of the U.S. Open Adaptive Surfing Championships are so proud to announce that the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences has signed on for another three years of title sponsorship for the U.S. Open ASC. The 2023, 2024, and 2025 events will be POWERED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF ST. AUGUSTINE.

The U.S. Open Adaptive Surfing Championships will be held September 6th-10th, 2023 at Oceanside Pier. The event will take place on the North side of the pier, the north side wave offers more opportunity for higher scoring and exciting waves for the competitors.

We look forward to seeing here in Oceanside for the 6th Annual U.S. Open Adaptive Surfing Championships.
This will be a historic moment in professional adaptive surfing. We will be crowning the 2023 AASP world champions in all 9 divisions that includes over $30,000 in prize purses.
Combined monies to be given to athletes at the 2023 event will be over $60,000!
The Stoke For Life Foundation is committed to spreading the aloha spirit through adaptive watersports.
The main goal for the Stoke for Life Foundation is to bring awareness to the rehabilitative benefits of adaptive water sports through clinics and education. Our goals are to introduce these benefits in an effort to advance adaptive water sports and to raise awareness for access to our beach communities for those with disabilities. Stoke for life will host paddle clinics for adaptive paddle boarding and adaptive surfing; these will be free open clinics to further education of adaptive water sports, beach access for the disabled, and the advancements in adaptive water sports equipment. Among other information will be hands-on teaching for volunteers to learn how to handle people with all levels of disabilities and ailments safely in and out of the water.
