“The Doheny Surf Festival is a celebration of surf culture and a way of showcasing the important role Doheny has played in the development of surfing in California,” says DSBIA President Bill Brooks.
“We are very grateful to have Subaru back as our presenting sponsor this year as well as our official sponsors Hobie Surfboards , City of Dana Point, Kona Brewing Company, , Verizon, California State Parks—they understand the value of preserving our state beach resources now and for the generations to come.
The best part is proceeds go to maintaining the treasured Southern California State Park of Doheny.”
This year’s surfing activities will combine the old and the new era of surfing. On Saturday, festival attendees will enjoy “Legends of the Longboard Era,” The Tyler Warren Invite – “New School of Traditional Longboarding” and Terry Martin “Sport of Kings Concours d’Elegance.”
Saturday musical entertainment atop the Still Water Stage located in the Kona Brewing beer garden will include the rhythmic sounds of Common Sense, Trevor Green, Aloha Radio, Kevin Miso and other special guests.
On Sunday, there will be a “’60s Longboard Contest” hosted by the Doheny Longboard Surfing Association and the highly anticipated “Hobie Alter Tandem Invitational.” This will be a special event paying homage to Alter and Hobie Surfboards, Southern California’s first surf shop which opened in 1954 in Dana Point.
“The Doheny Surf Festival’s vibe and aloha spirit at a legendary surf location is as good as it gets for surf culture and family fun, and it’s free, how great is that? We are very proud to produce an event that is family orientated and helps maintain this beautiful beach,” said Norman Kahn, Owner and CEO of Utopia Entertainment Inc.
