In 2018, SBBC collaborated with Catalina Classic Paddleboard Race committee members Matt Walls and Scott Rusher, and the City of Hermosa Beach to found the South Bay Paddle, a 15 mile race from the Hermosa Beach Pier, south four miles to the Palos Verdes Beach Club, four miles out to sea to the R10 buoy, and back to the Hermosa Beach pier.
For my 14th birthday, a large group of us met at Micks shop on a Friday to caravan down to Ruby’s Diner car show. Mick drove his 1917 Studebaker.

The South Bay Boardriders Club established the Big Wave Challenge in 2011 to recognize a select group of surfers who chase big waves. Waves must be at least “Triple Overhead” and caught between Indicator in Palos Verdes and Dockweiler State Beach in El Segundo.
Part of the South Bay Boardriders Club mission is to be “Guardians of the Shoreline.” This includes beach clean-ups and fundraisers traditionally associated with ocean-based, non-profit groups. But in addition, we set an example of contemporary sustainability.
The South Bay Boardriders Club lends a financial hand to surfers in our community whose lives are upended by unexpected tragedies.
A core goal of the South Bay Boardriders Club is to encourage young people’s growth, in and out of the water. With that in mind the SBBC Scholarship program was launched.
Grom-O-Rama is designed to introduce kids 3 to 13 to the joys of a day at the beach. Over 50 boys and girls participated in this year’s Grom-O-Rama.
