IV Surfrider is hosting the first ever Isla Vista Benefit Surf Contest at Dreamies!

The contest will happen on Saturday March 11th, 11AM-6PM! WE’RE NOW ACCEPTING INDIVIDUAL ENTRIES, Individuals must donate to enter.

Think of this as a contest comprised solely of expression sessions. We promote equality of all shapes and sizes – when it comes to board length, we’re pro-choice! Wax down your sticks, suit up, always wear protection, and watch out for crabs!

Dreamies is the reefbreak just to the right of Dogshit Park, if you’re facing the ocean. The suggested audience area will be at Dogshit Park but the beach is always best! If the waves do not coorporate, we will be moving the contest to the Devereux Stairs.

We will be accepting contestants in teams of five. Teams must sign up and buy in to the contest at least a week in advance. Late registration will be $10 extra ($35) and may not be accepted due to limited slots. You can sign your team up at the contest website: https://sites.google.com/view/2017dreamiessurfcontest/home. Community teams are being asked for a $25 buy-in donation. We will also be accepting teams representing Greek houses! Greek houses will be donating a sum of money as part of their philanthropy mission. We are asking Greek teams for a $150 buy-in donation.

This year’s contest proceeds will fund Isla Vista Surfrider’s purchase and distribution of reusable party cups made from 100% recycled plastic, and overflow donations will be sent to the Rainforest Action Network to benefit their Climate Action Fund. You can learn more about these initiatives at the event, or by checking out their websites!

If you are interested in donating money in exchange for cups, message IV Surfrider and/or come to the event to add your name and contact info to the bulk purchase sign up sheet at the contest next to the judging panel!
