Dear Prospective Sponsors and Vendors
The Oceanside Longboard Surfing Club a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization) will be hosting its 35th Annual Oceanside Longboard Surf Contest and Beach Festival. This year’s event will be honoring Women in Surfing. Celebrating early pioneers of our sport and current day competitors. We will have a Women’s Invitational as part of our event that includes a $1000 purse.
The event will be held at the Oceanside Pier from August 10-11, 2019. As in years past, this year’s event promises to provide the public with a wide variety of activities that the whole family can enjoy and an opportunity for sponsors and vendors like you to promote your products or services. Some of California’s and Hawaii’s most influential surfers which include L.J. Richards, Dale Dobson, Donald Takayama, Rell Sun, David Nuuhiwa, Phil Edwards, Linda Benson and Jericho Poppler, have all been attracted to the Oceanside Contest over its 35 year history and this year will be no different. Professional and amateur surfers from Santa Cruz to Coronado will compete for bragging rights in the Coalition of Surfing Clubs.
In the Band Shell area just a few paces from the beach, vendors like you can display merchandise and sell your unique products or services to the contest spectators as well as the high volume of casual beachgoers. On Saturday there will be a luau event starting at 4pm with Varua Tahiti – Polynesian Dancers followed by a catered dinner at 5pm provided by Hunters Steakhouse. 6pm The Surf Rockers start and will be playing a tribute to the late, great Dick Dale.
Our beer garden has expanded to a 40’x30′ footprint. Our 2019 craft beer vendors include: Breakwater Brewing, Green Flash, Pizza Port, Bagby, Culver Brewing, Oceanside Brewing Co and Tap That as well as Red and White Wine provided by Grocery Outlet.
The California Surf Museum will have a special exhibit promoting Women in Surfing. For the kids we have a special Moms with Groms booth providing activities.
If you have participated with us in the past then you know what a terrific venue the Band Shell area is. Located adjacent to the pier and beach contest site, the venue attracts visitors to both the beach and pier. With ample space to set up display booths and musicians providing unique musical entertainment, as well as food and drink while your products receive the exposure they deserve in a unique Southern California atmosphere.
Our event will be publicized in local newspapers, on social media, on multiple websites and through the California network of participating surf clubs.
As an event sponsor your contribution to this event will be used to assist with funding local middle and high school surfing programs, Stoke for Life Foundation and the California Surf Museum.
Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of Southern California’s surfing history in the making at a popular venue – the Oceanside Pier. The pier is frequented by surfers and their families, beachgoers and tourists taking in the California beach culture and lifestyle during the peak of the summer season.
