Camp Shred went off at Cardiff’s San Elijo Campground over the weekend, and a great time was had by all. For two straight days, hundreds of surfboards, wetsuits, accessories and skateboards were available for the nearly 4,000 attendees to demo for free. Fun waves graced the Cardiff reefs and a lively bustle kept things interesting on land with sunny skies and 70-plus degree weather. Topping it all off, event hosts Surfing Magazine and Surf Ride were able to hand off checks to benefit California State Parks and the Keep A Breast Foundation.
Subaru offered test drives of three new vehicles and for each test drive, provided a donation to California State Parks. Surfing Magazine sold nearly 200 goody bags filled with fun sponsor swag including a limited edition New Era hat, also benefitting California State Parks. The Sierra Nevada beer garden was the life of the party with three of their most popular beers and proceeds donated to the Keep A Breast Foundation.
Live acts Austin Burns, Loose Snakes and Sister Juanita and 94.9 FM laid the soundscape for the weekend while C2O Pure Coconut Water hydrated and Banzai Bowls nourished the crowd. A Coachella ticket contest from 94.9 FM added to the excitement, but everyone was really there to try out all the new goods from brands like: Hayden Shapes, Spy, Clif Bar, INT, Panda, Catch Surf, Isurus, Surf Rx, Boardworks, FCS, O’Neill, DHD, Robert August, Rusty, Surftech, JS, Pyzel, DB Surfboards, Everyday, Vampirate, Rip Curl, Futures, Waterman’s, Sector 9, Otis, Chemistry, Creatures of Leisure, Quiksilver, Body Glove, Channel Islands, Lost, Firewire, Raen and Super.
Camp Shred wouldn’t be possible without it’s generous sponsors and partners. Big thanks to Surf Ride, SURFING Magazine, C20 Pure Coconut Water, Subaru, Banzai Bowls, Sierra Nevada, New Era and 94.9 FM for their support.
