We’ve always said that “the best things in life start with B’s” and this event is full of some of the best B’s around- Beach, brands, bands, bites, and brews– sounds pretty good to us.

And better yet, this event is free and open to the public. Camp Shred brings some of the most popular surf brands and their loyal consumers together for a fun-filled weekend of surfing and demo-ing the latest and greatest gear. Plus, the event benefits California State Parks.

Camp Shred just announced this year’s expanded list of vendors. You can try out wetsuits, surfboards, and other surf gear from brands including:

And more

But the fun doesn't stop with the free demo opportunities. The festival grounds will also feature a music stage hosted by Chris Cote with bands such as Almost Monday, Soul Juice, Triceratropical, Dano Forte's Juke Joint Freak Show, and the Red Fox Tails.
The God Save the Cuisine food truck will keep the troops fed and the ever-popular Saint Archer Brewery beer garden will keep everyone hydrated and happy.


Proceeds from the beer garden will benefit California State Parks, specifically the Friends of Cardiff and Carlsbad State Beaches. For updates, details, directions and more, visit #campshred

Camp Shred wants to remind everyone that what they do wouldn't be possible without its generous sponsors and partners. Big thanks to Surf Ride, SURFING Magazine, Rinse Kit and Saint Archer Brewing Company for their support.

About Rinse Kit
After years of going to work sandy and salty after a morning surf, young inventor Chris Crawford saw a need in the market for portable, pressurized water. Taking his knowledge of integrated water systems from a career in the pool construction business, Chris developed the first Rinse Kit prototype in his garage. Inspired by the countless “where did you get that?” and “that thing is awesome, how does it work?” questions, Chris decided to open his garage door and take his creation to the public. Chris knew that in order to do so he would have to build a team of like-minded individuals that would not only share his passion for the outdoors, but were committed to achieving his vision of offering this simplistic yet life-enhancing product to the masses.

At RinseKit we take pride in being the guardians of Chris' vision. We wake up every day with the same goal of adding value to our company, so that everyone who uses this revolutionary product will find benefit in it's use, just like we all have. Whether you're rinsing off like Chris after a surf session, cleaning muddy boots from a hard day's work, or washing your dirty dog before it jumps in the car, we hope that the RinseKit helps you find more time in your day to do the things you love.
