Last week, Ben "Skindog" Skinner and Adam Griffiths had been selected to surf for SurfingGB in the first ever ISA World Longboarding Games in Peru.
The two best Juniors, Ben Bates (17), Raife Gaskell (17) and Britain's number one female Claire Smail have also been selected through the Rankings of the British Longboard Union events after guidance from SurfingGB and the ISA.
They will head out to Huachao beach in Peru to compete against the best long boarders from around the world in the surfing equivalent of the Olympic games on the hunt for Britain's first ever world Gold medalist in the ISA but have no funding.
The "Endless Fundraiser" will be at Fistral beach bar on Thursday the September 5 and will start at 6pm with a Newquay surf life saver taster, free family beach tennis, free Fistral Rangers session with Karl, face painting and an opportunity to surf along side some of the British team including Ben Skinner and Adam Griffiths.
The trophies will be handed out at 8pm before the raffle and all are welcome.
Newquay musician Joe Hurworth will be playing at the beach bar from 7pm and with a great raffle there will be plenty to do for all the family and for adults as the evening progresses.
Matt Way from the Joe Way Appeal said: "Ben, Adam and the surfing community have helped us raise more than £117,000 for 20 charities over the last five years so we are delighted to finally be able to offer some help to these guys.
Joe would have been 10-years-old on the same day as the event so it's a nice way to celebrate and remember him."

The start and finish of race eight of the 10 event Cornish Multi Terrain Series took place last Saturday evening in almost perfect running conditions, writes Paul Wright.
The course was in good condition primarily as a result of the fine summer weather Cornwall has experienced this year.
In recent years the course has been made more difficult, primarily because of the inclement weather either prior to or during the event.
With the course being very dry, times in this years race were much faster than in 2012 for many runners.
The start and finish was in front of the magnificent house where 219 runners completed the course which was 10 more than last year. Newquay Road Runners were very well represented with 27 representing the club.
The course took the athletes across parkland with its steep climbs and downhill sections, then through woods, fields, along river paths, a beautiful garden and finally back across the parkland again to the finish.
The men's race was won in a very impressive 36.49 by Tony Brewer representing Mile High.
Newquay's Jonny Colaco, for the 2nd race in a row, led his colleagues home finishing oin a very respectful 10th place with a 40.44 and he had a real battle with club mate Alex Daniels who took 12th position just 10 seconds further back.
The ladies' race was won by Heidi Treganza, Cornwall AC in 43.21 giving her a top 30 placing overall. Leading the Newquay ladies home was Pat Coates who continues with her outstanding form.
Newquay Road Runners category winners: Pat Coates 1st female 50-54; Jonny Colaco 2nd male 40-44; Martin Davis 1st 55-59; Peter Allen 2nd 55-59.

OUTSTANDING DISPLAYS BY NEWQUAY ROAD RUNNERS:
The final event in the four race Duchy Athletic Club 5k series, sponsored by 'Personal Best' took place in near perfect conditions, albeit rather warm for some, last Wednesday at the Par track, at which 18 of Newquay's finest did themselves and their club proud, writes Paul Wright.
There were 63 who managed to finish the event and 94 runners took part in at least one of the series races.
The men's race was won by Cornwall ACs Phil Wilson in an impressive 15.02 The ladies race was won by Phil's team-mate Emma Stepto in 16.16, a brilliant effort when one considers Emma ran a hard 10k the previous Sunday and won that too in just over 34 minutes.
Newquay's Miranda Heathcote, continuing on the comeback trail, was absolutely delighted to record 16.56.
Emma is ranked number 1 in the UK female 40 – 44 category and Miranda is not too far behind ranked 4th UK athelete in the same category.
Cornwall is very fortunate to have these two brilliant runners, who are very popular on the race circuit, and I've no doubt there's more to come from both of them.
Jonny Colaco, in his first season, led the Newquay contingent home to take 8th place and record yet another personal best of 16.48.
He had a battle up until the later stages with team mate Jonas Gummesson who finished 11th overall in 16.54.
The series presentation took place later the same evening and a number of Newquay Road Runners, having run a minimum of 3 of the 4 events, picked up their richly deserved awards as follows:
Ladies: Miranda Heathcote 2nd 40-49; Sandra Toher 1st 30-39; Lou Gore 2nd 30-39.
Men: Jonny Colaco 1st 40-49; Peter Allen 3rd 50-59; Ray Frith 1st 60-69; John Lillis 2nd 60-69.
The overall positions and times of those representing Newquay at Par were:
8th Jonny Colaco 16.48 2nd M40-44; 11th Jonas Gummesson 16.54; 12th Miranda Heathcote 16.56 2nd lady and 2nd lady 40-44; 24th Chris Walker 18.36; 31st Kevin Emmerson 19.11 2nd M50-54; 35th Peter Allen 19.52 1st M55-59; 37th April Hogg 19.56 1st F17-19; 38th Paul Wright 20.05 1st M65-69; 39th Sandra Toher20. 20.2 1st F30-34; 40th Lou Gore 20.22 1st F35-39; 42nd Aiden Clarke 20.44; 50th Mike Kestle 21.47 1st M60-64; 53rd Ray Frith 22.45 2nd M60-64; 55th John Lillis 22.57 2nd M65-69; 57th Colette Clements 23.39; 60th Katie Bullock 24.47 2ND F20-29; 61st Simon Lee 25.11; 62nd Roger Menzies 25.32.
Natural Generation 7, The Unbeatables 1
Natural Generation continued to close the gap on the league leaders with a comprehensive win against an Unbeatables side that looked far from it.
Ed Wilton (4), Craig Barclay and Steve Mansfield (2) were all on target for Natural Generation in a win that closes the gap on first placed Cosmos to just four points.
Raiders 1, Keep it Local 6
Keep it Local started the brighter of the two sides and once Neil Currah struck to give them the lead their was no looking back.
Tom Currah (2), Ian Mellor, Mark Edmonds and Neil Currah were all on target with Liam Powell scoring the consolation goal for Raiders.
The win means that Keep it Local move level with Cosmos at the top of the Premiership, but with an inferior goal difference they still sit in second place.
Firetrader 2, Quintrell Inn A 0
Firetrader have been improving for several weeks and their improvement continued against a Quintrell Inn side who are still to solve their striking woes.
Paul Hawken and Matt Rich were both on target for Firetrader in a win that gives them hope of avoiding the drop back to the Championship.
Dream Sessions 2, Firetrader 0
Dream Sessions were without several of their regulars but that didn't stop them from taking the lead thanks to a great strike from Levente Davies.
Harry Watkins added the second shortly afterwards to give his side some breathing space and ultimately win them the match.
Mitchell 1, Zodiac Interiors 0
Both sides started well and gave it everything to find the first goal. Zodiac had their chances.
But they couldn't take them and were eventually undone by Craig Allen who struck the games only goal to win the match for his side and keep themselves top of the Championship.
Quintrell Inn B 0, The Fockers 0
Both sides played well but they struggled to create chances and when they did they were wasted.
As the game went on a draw began to look inevitable and when the final whistle blew both sides were satisfied with the draw.
Bayern Neverlosen 0, Perran Penguins 1
Perran Penguins played much of the game with just four players but that didn't stop them from posing a constant danger on the break.
Bayern Neverlosen had lots of chances but they couldn't take them and they were eventually punished by Harry Watkins who struck the games only goal to win the match for his side and keep them in the running for promotion.
Ugandan Dollars 1, Hangover 96 0
Ugandan Dollars had to adjust to life without Graham Underwood and to begin with it looked as though they were going to struggle.
That was until Andy Lyttle smashed the ball into the back of the net to give his side the lead and eventually win them the match. The win means that Ugandan Dollars are now nine points clear at the top of the division and look almost certain to stay there.
Minor Threat 0, Atlantic Reach 1
Both sides started well but by half time neither side had managed to find the back of the net.
Atlantic Reach started the second half with renewed energy and were soon in the lead thanks to a great strike from Saggers.
Minor Threat gave it their best shot to get back into the match, but they struggled to create chances and eventually had to settle for defeat.
Atlantic Porth 0, Class on the Grass 0
Both sides started well but they struggled to create chances and as the game went on a draw seemed more and more likely.
Class on the Grass had the best of the chances but the Atlantic Porth keeper was in great form and eventually the match finished goalless.
ST CLEER 1, ST NEWLYN E 1:
After a very entertaining and fiercely fought match, St Newlyn East had to settle for a 1-1 draw on Saturday in their opening Duchy League match of the new season, writes Shaun Skinner.
Newlyn striker Liam Dent celebrated his first goal for the new season in the 20th minute.
But just before half time St Cleer equalised with an overhead kick from Jordan Goodison-Powell.
The second half saw a booking and sending off for a St Cleer player as a result of handling the ball on the line but the penalty was missed.
Late in the game a bad tackle from a Newlyn player led to some retaliation, which resulted in the sending off of a player from both sides.
St Newlyn East Reserves, under their new manager Colin Gregory, start their season on Saturday, with an away game at St Teath (2.30).
FORMER CAPTAIN BARRY WINS PRESIDENT'S CUP:
Some 78 men teed it up for the President's Cup on Saturday at Newquay Golf Club and winning it all was ex-captain Barry Pearce on 41 points followed by another former captain Colin Martin on 40.
Third spot went to Bert Harper on 39 points with Haydn Brown on 38 points. Next up were the trio of David Ball, Jon Nicholls and Dougie Sidebottom all on 37 points.
Over the day the players found the 14th and 16th the easiest on average, with the 3rd and 6th jointly giving up most birdies while t the 4th clearly proved the most difficult.
On Thursday, 12 Seniors made their way to The Point at Polzeath (Roserrow) for this year's away fixture match with them and it was honours even with a drawn match.
The day ended in sadness though because that night the Seniors' Treasurer, Phil Dyer, passed away and all our thoughts are with Jane and his family at this sad time.
The ladies played the Scratch and Handicap competition this week and the results will be combined to eventually confirm an overall winner.
Winning on Tuesday with a 70 was Sally Anne Stacey with a net 70 from Sue Phillips on 74, a score matched by Liz Harding.
The 2nd again proved the easiest but the 12th was treacherous and played to an average of three over par.
On Thursday the same 21 players teed it up and this saw a win for Janet Attree with a 73 to win by one from Michelle Burgess who was one in front of Sally Anne Stacey on a day when yet again the 2nd played the easiest with the 10th proving the hardest this time.
In the men's midweek medal Ian Wright and Richard Martin shared 69's with Ian coming out on top on count back with Jack Bray Evans making a welcome return to the club with a 70 and Sean Rooney 4th on a 71.
