About Tubes4Boobs

Where it all began

Tubes4Boobs Event Organiser Courtney’s mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 at age 47 followed by her grandmother shortly after. The idea for Tubes4Boobs came about as Courtney wanted to do something to raise awareness and funds to help in the fight against breast cancer. 

Inspired by her husband Marley's love of surfing they came up with the idea to organise their own longboard surfing competition in Newcastle. The event holds seven surfing divisions, featuring the crowd favourite tag team event where surfers don bras to raise awareness and support for Cancer Council in Newcastle, Hunter and Lake Macquarie.

Since it began in 2015 - over five events, Tubes4Boobs has raised more than $80,000 for Hunter Cancer Council. 

This year with the help of our awesome Event Committee and the Steel City Longboard Club, Tubes4Boobs is back bigger and better, on Saturday 19 October at Dixon Park Beach Newcastle. 

Did you know?  1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Cancer research and support for people with Cancer relies heavily on not-for-profit charities like the Cancer Councils funding. Let’s team up, make this event the best one yet and help raise the awareness and funds needed to create a future where no mothers will have to tell their child they have cancer! 

We want to make a difference and you can too!
