Pipeline to a Cure: a Surf + Chefs Event is an evening that will celebrate Hampton Roads’ rich culinary talent, as well as the connection between surfing and cystic fibrosis (CF). The evening features a five-course gourmet dinner, prepared by the area’s top chefs, using fresh locally sourced ingredients, a cocktail reception, live and silent auctions, CF research updates, live music, and the opportunity to support the mission through our Bid-for-a-Cure.
 
New this year, the addition of five of Tidewater’s top culinary talents will bring the dining experience to new heights in this ocean-inspired event. These chefs will work together to serve up hope for a cure for cystic fibrosis to the event’s 200 anticipated guests.


 
2019 Pipeline Surf Ambassador



2019 Pipeline Surf Ambassador Balaram Stack is a professional surfer who hails from Long Island. In the water at an early age; by 11 he had gained the reputation as a ripper in local lineups and was sponsored by unsOund, a Long Island surf shop. Since his initial discovery, Stack has traveled the world from Australia to Hawaii, building his repertory of aerials, as well as honing his ability to ride in the barrel.  His skill and winnings grew and he is currently sponsored by Volcom and many other companies familiar to beach lovers.

Since his last visit with us at the 2018 Pipeline to a Cure event, Balaram won the unsOund Surf Pro contest, was the subject of the surf film, CAKE, and in February of 2019 placed fourth surfing the world renown Pipeline, off of Hawaii’s North Shore in the Volcom Pipe Pro.
