Surf Contest at Point Mugu to be open to the public

The Naval Base Ventura County Surf Contest will showcase some of the best surfers in Southern California.

The contest, which will be held August 25th and 26th beginning at noon daily, is free and open to the public. This is an exciting opportunity for the surfing community to access some of the best waves Southern California has to offer. The Southern swell, submarine canyon, and sandbars cause a distinctive and larger wave break than at other local beaches. The event draws international surfing champions from around the globe, and 70 contestants are expected to ride the waves.

There will be live music throughout each day and for the first time, MWR will host a Cornhole Tournament offering prizes for the two-person team winners. A variety of vendor booths will be open during the event and food will be available for purchase.

The Las Posas Gate at NBVC Point Mugu will be open 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. both event days for visitors. All guests will be directed to a parking lot near the Surf Contest venue. During these times, NBVC residents and personnel will need to show their DoD ID to proceed to areas on base outside of the Surf Contest thruway and venue.

Photography is allowed only at the venue site and toward the ocean during the Surf Contest. No other photography of the installation will be allowed. The media is welcome.
