LA is not built for the rain. It has been flooding, flooded, and in a flood, the streets are flooded. So the Dudesons decided to take advantage of this opportunity and surf in the streets of LA!

Vintage surfboards from the colorful innovation period in surfboard design of the 70's and 80's curated from some of the top private collections in the world will be assembled on site to create a pop-up installation titled, "Expression Session 1". Please join us along with special guests representing Dogtown to talk story on Sunday, March 5th from 7 am - 10 am General Admi52ion located at 52 Brooks in Venice, CA

Surfboards and Coffee's mission is to celebrate and preserve the culture of surfing and to grow the community of enthusiasts.

Keep it clean, it's simple. Rider Shack will be hosting an educational event on Saturday from 4-6:30 pm about simply just picking up trash at the beach. If we all did a little, it would turn into a big thing! Live music 🎢 , food πŸ₯˜ and members of Team Marine and Surfrider LA will be there!
It's actually Malibu, but whatever...

The 23rd Annual Venice Surf-A-Thon Surf Contest held at the Venice Pier in 2-3ft glassy conditions on Dec 10th 2016. The contest sponsored 19 surfers and 41 men, women and children competed in the contest. 975.00 dollars was raised and donated to the MLD Christian Charity School Mindanao. Everybody had a great time in the friendly low key but competitive contest. Many new participants and families attended, as well as the crusty old barnacles who never fail to make it down to Venice and help out in one way our another. Local legend Joe Shmo called in from a very secure location and the live link up was broadcast via P.A to the crowd on the beach and pier.

The 23rd Annual Venice Surf-A-Thon Award Show featured Mitchell Schaffer, DJ Jacques and Frontside Grind performing live. The raffle was again a crowd pleaser, as well as the pizza and product tosses.

Thank you one and all for helping make the event a success 23 years in a row!
