Cardiff Surf Classic Block Party


We have so much to celebrate about Cardiff - our pristine coastline and beaches and the amazing local influencers and organizations that preserve and propel positive change for these areas. We couldn’t host the Surf Classic in the same capacity as last year but we wanted to honor our local surf culture and the environmental awareness that links our community together. Let’s come together as a community and keep the positive vibes alive! Join us for a fundraiser at the Patagonia Cardiff Store. Enjoy live music, live mural art by Skye Walker & Marissa Quinn, t-shirt screen printing by Forward Screen Printing, BUMP coffee truck, food by Moonage and Sambazon, and Lost Abbey Beer Lounge.

As this is a green event, we encourage you to walk or bike and street parking is limited. There will be bike racks for bike parking. 

Blank T-shirts will be available for purchase to screen print or you may bring your own to get styled with the awesome Skye Walker artwork below. 

Suggested donation at the door is $15 and the first 50 to arrive will receive a special Cardiff gift bag! All funds raised will go back to community enhancement projects and bringing Cardiff Surf Classic back to the Reef in 2017!
