Join us August 3-6, 2017 at Manhattan Beach, CA for the International Surf Festival, soak up the sun while you watch participants, ranging in age from 8-80, compete in a variety of events including a surfing contest, bodysurfing contest, beach run, dory race, and youth events and one of the fastest growing sports, paddleboard racing!

Standup paddleboard racing derives from SUPsurfing, which is what it sounds like, surfing on standup paddleboards! The reason SUPracing has exploded in popularity is because of its accessibility, it’s something that you can pick up in a matter of minutes, of course, the newbie won’t be winning any races, but it is still remarkably attainable! This sport tends to draw weekend warriors for its athletes, people that have jobs and families who pursue this sport for the fun and pleasure of it, ensuring a low-key, fun-loving and close-knit crowd of friends and family there to cheer on their loved ones. Checking out an event like this is something you will remember for a long time!

While you watch and enjoy the athletes competing you will also get to experience the beautiful Manhattan Beach from the comfort of The Sea View Inn at the Beach, the closest hotel to the Pacific Ocean in Manhattan Beach!
