Dear Prospective Sponsors and Vendors
Just an early reminder that the summer season will soon be upon us and with summer come those warm, sunny days at the beach with friends and family. As a celebration of summer days at the beach, the Oceanside Longboard Surfing Club (a 501C-3 non-profit organization) will be hosting its 33rd Annual Oceanside Longboard Surf Contest and Beach Festival. This year’s event will be celebrating 33 years of surfing contests produced by the Oceanside Longboard Surfing Club. As an added surfing experience, this event has been combined with the 17th Annual Guy Takayama Pro Noseriding.
Both events will be held at the Oceanside Pier from August 11-13, 2017. As in years past, this year’s event promises to provide the public with a wide variety of activities that the whole family can enjoy and an opportunity for sponsors and vendors like you to promote your products or services. Some of California’s and Hawaii’s most influential surfers which include L.J. Richards, Dale Dobson, Donald Takayama, Rell Sun, David Nuuhiwa, Phil Edwards, Linda Benson and Jericho Poppler, have all been attracted to the Oceanside Contest over its 33 year history and this year will be no different. Professional and amateur surfers from Santa Cruz to Coronado will compete for bragging rights in the Coalition of Surfing Clubs portion of the event and a cash prize in the Guy Takayama Pro Noseriding and Men’s Open Contests.
In the Band Shell area just a few paces from the beach, vendors like you can display merchandise and sell your unique products or services to the contest spectators as well as the high volume of casual beachgoers. If you have participated with us in the past then you know what a terrific venue the Band Shell area is. Located adjacent to the pier and beach contest site, the venue attracts visitors to both the beach and pier. With ample space to set up display booths and musicians providing unique musical entertainment, as well as food and drink while your products receive the exposure they deserve in a unique southern California atmosphere.
Our event will be publicized in local newspapers, on the radio and through the California network of participating surf clubs.
As an event sponsor your contribution to this event will be used to assist with funding local middle and high school surfing programs and the California Surf Museum.
Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of Southern California’s surfing history in the making at a popular venue – the Oceanside Pier. The pier is frequented by surfers and their families, beachgoers and tourists taking in the California beach culture and lifestyle during the peak of the summer season.
