South Bay Boardriders Club offers more than surf contests

This past year, our 9-year-old, all volunteer club launched nearly a dozen new activities in support of our mission “to introduce families, youth, and our community to all aspects of ocean activities, and to being guardians of our local shoreline.”

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.

South Bay Surf Club contests go high tech

In 2019, SBBCwill have laptops and printers to provide live computer scoring. An electronic clock and horn will signal the starts and endings of heats. Solar power will replace the noisy, polluting generators.
