After an almost 20 year hiatus, surf racing returns to Southern California on April 14 & 15 at the Huntington Beach Pier (south side)! This much anticipated event will feature 2 days of IJSBA sanctioned watercraft racing. Below is the important information you will need for this event:


Pit Parking: Space is extremely limited so we are asking, if possible, to bring small trailers. However, if your team is bringing in more than 3 skis in an enclosed trailer, please contact Ross to set up parking as we do have a secondary parking lot for enclosed trailers/motorhomes but please remember space is very limited. The City of Huntington Beach has granted access to two (2) parking lots for this event. The "North" lot is adjacent to the HB Pier and is the 1st lot to the direct North of the HB Pier (to the right if facing the Pier). This parking lot has 183 spots or 91 tandem spots which is good for a tow vehicle and trailer. The secondary lot is to the South (or left of the of Pier) just past the the Marine Safety/Lifeguard Building. This lot is much smaller than the North lot but can accommodate larger enclosed trailers & motorhomes (dry camping only, no hook ups). All teams must indicate what type of trailer (single, double or enlcosed, if enclosed, what size) in addition to their entry form submission.
