Huntington Beach, CA (April 17, 2006) — The Surfrider Foundation and Propaganda Headquarters announced today that their wildly successful Celebrity Surf Jam will once again be returning to the world famous Huntington Beach Pier on June 10th, 2006. This thrilling and one-of-a-kind event brings together a host of stars from the world of music, entertainment and sports, to compete alongside the world’s top professional surfers and Surfrider Foundation volunteers from across the county.
Returning hosts Pat O’Connell and Sal Masekela are joined this year by Incubus singer Brandon Boyd.
“My friends and I have grown up surfing in California and we try to do everything we can to preserve the beaches and oceans that have afforded us the opportunity to surf, says Boyd. “Through our band, Incubus, we’ve been lucky enough to raise funds to donate to The Surfrider Foundation in the past. Celebrity Surf Jam is just one more way I can help raise awareness for need to protect our coastal environments.
In addition to bringing together celebrities, pros and activists, Surf Jam is unique due its utilization of the National Surf League’s revolutionary competitive format – The Game; which pits teams of surfers against each other in an exciting fast-paced match that includes quarters, time-outs and substitutions.
Surfrider Foundation Celebrity Surf Jam is presented by OP, adidas and FedEx. For more information on the event, including athlete bios, event schedule and wallpapers, please go to www.surfrider.org/surfjam
