The Run Down


Canterbury University Boardriders Association, CUBA, is dedicated to bringing together people who have a passion for all or any board sports. CUBA hosts some of the best events on and off campus with our RIDE, PARTY, REPEAT attitude. Twenty-Seventeen was our biggest yet, we over doubled our memberships to a whopping 1500! This set us up to introduce a full calendar of new and improved events. And now TWENTY - EIGHTEEN is on track to out-do the last, promising to go bigger and better than we’ve been before!

CUBA has won many awards for our awesome events; in 2014 we were recognised as the “Supreme Club”, 2015 “Best Marketing” and 2016 ‘Best Social club’, ‘Best Event’ and SUPREME CLUB. 2017 saw us tread new ground and receive ‘Best Marketing’ by reaching over half a MILLION viewers on our Jib the Foundry live stream.

CUBA keeps growing, our events continue to get bigger and better, but we make sure our grass roots are covered first with plenty of opportunity for members to move through the kook stage (wannabe surfer, snowboarder, skater, etc) while our more experienced members push the limits.

Come along and get amongst the big family feel. Whether you’re an experienced shredder, seasoned party frother or looking to get into a board sport C.U.B.A has something to offer you with a massive range of infamous events to max out the fun meter:
