The Surfrider has announced they will be hosting the 9th annual Otter Rock n Roll Youth Surf Competition and Beach Cleanup Challenge in celebration of International Surfing Day. Observed globally, International Surfing Day celebrates the sport of surfing and helps raise awareness about issues facing our ocean, waves and beaches.
The Otter Rock n Roll will take place on June 17th at Otter Rock/Devil’s Punchbowl State Park from 8am-3pm. An age 18 and under youth surf contest, the event is open to surfers of all skill levels, is family-friendly and welcomes the general beachgoing public.
Event pre-registration is $25 at www.otterrockandroll.com. Space is limited; sign up early to reserve your spot! Beach registration is $35 and closes at 8am sharp. All participants will receive an event t-shirt and great prizes from local sponsors; there will be beach games and activities throughout the day including a special beach cleanup challenge where youth can compete for different prizes through various stewardship activities. From the no-experience necessary beginner division with lessons and the parent with child division to the more competitive 13-15 and 16-18 year old divisions (both boys and girls), there is something here for all water and beach lovers.
Otter Rock n Roll began 9 years ago in celebration of International Surfing Day which is officially observed on June 20th uniting surfers from around the world to celebrate the sport of surfing and give back to our ocean, waves and beaches through stewardship activities. “This is a great opportunity to engage in ocean stewardship, physical activity, and family friendly competition. No surf experience is required – just a desire to enjoy the sport of surfing” says Vince Pappalardo of the Surfrider Newport Chapter and organizer of the event.
