The 14th Annual Surf for the Sea will take place on Saturday and Sunday, September 11 & 12, 2010 at the
Oceanside Pier (north side). Surf for the Sea is a commemorative surfing event in loving memory of the
late Harry Bennett, Steve Leighton, Tore Bonura, Chuck “Clubber” Hundley, Banning Capps, Court
Overin, John Craven, Midget Smith and Casey Williams, all local surfers who have passed away.
This is a memorial benefit for the Surfrider Foundation, San Diego Chapter and other Environmental
Organizations helping to protect our coast, ocean, waves and beaches. Surf for the Sea will also consider
a donation to other non profit organizations that support a positive image for our surfing youth.
Trophies will be awarded in 14 divisions.
The entry fee is $40 for amateur and $80 for the Pro/Am Division. All competitors receive an event T-shirt, lunch catered by local restaurant great Johnny Manana’s and a chance at the opportunity raffle including surfboards, wetsuits, and great prizes provided by the surfing industry. Surf for the Sea also includes a Beach Clean-Up that ties into the theme of environmental awareness. Entry blanks are available in Oceanside at Johnny Manana’s Restaurant, Assylum Surf Shop, K-5 Surfshop, Surfride Surf Shop, and Byrne & Chemistry Surfboards as well as on-line at www.surfridersd.org, www.surfwsa.org, and www.seasister.com . We are also very excited that MTV will be filming their final series of MADE for a few hours at Surf for the Sea on Saturday and will be filmed in conjunction with a WSA event.
