Kelly Slater & Shane Dorian host benefit trip to Tavarua



Humanitarian Updates

SurfAid, Smile Train and others get funded from trip entries

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 22 October, 2015 - Omaze is organizing a trip to Tavarua Island hosted by Kelly Slater and Shane Dorian all while supporting four causes.

One winner and a guest will stay on the private Tavarua Island, surf with the two professionals and enjoy golf and fishing excursions.

"Shane and I have been to Tavarua countless times, our favorite place on earth," said Kelly Slater. "We're super excited to share this amazing experience with the winner and show them what our lives are all about,” says Kelly Slater. “Basically it doesn't get any better than this for someone who just wants a cool vacation or a great surf trip. Every time I go I think it could be the best trip of my life." 

“We have spent a lot of time on Tavarua over the years and know all the best spots. The fact that every entry benefits such amazing causes really takes this thing to the next level,” Shane Dorian adds.

All proceeds will benefit four global causes that are closest to Slater and Dorian’s hearts. Those causes include SurfAid, MORE Than Sport Foundation, Skate to School Scholarship Fund and Smile Train. Unlike an auction where the highest bidder wins, all participants have the chance to win this incredible experience. To enter, donate as little as $10 at

“Going on a surf trip with Kelly and Shane to Tavarua is one of the most amazing experiences we've ever offered. Whether you’re a big wave surfer or just a beginner, hanging out with two of the greatest surfers alive in one of the most beautiful places on the planet is truly once-in-a-lifetime,” says Omaze co-founder and co-CEO, Matt Pohlson.

“In the past three years, Omaze has launched over 100 life-changing experiences – everything from hanging out backstage with Bono to winning a walk-on role in Star Wars: Episode VII – all with the ultimate goal of making a difference in the lives of others. We are excited and privileged to be able to partner with Kelly and Shane to support four phenomenal causes.”

The campaign launches today and runs until November 11th. The winner and one lucky guest will take off on this incredible experience on November 28th and will stay in Fiji until December 4th.
