The waves along the California coast are filled with surfers year-round but Surf Rodeo wrangles up an unusual, quirky crowd of beach combers each summer - surf cowboys! Surf Rodeo is the brainchild of JD Drury, a skilled professional in the surf, skate and music industries. Drury's mission for Surf Rodeo was to bring the highly competitive, cut-throat, serious atmosphere of today's surf competitions back to its relaxed roots, where fun always comes first.
This year's 7th annual Surf Rodeo will feature eccentric surf contests, street fair with 70+ vendors (offering food and craft goods), beach bucking bull rides, a kids corral, a bikini cowgirl roundup, two beer gardens and two music stages showcasing a nationally recognized musical lineup.
The Surf Rodeo competition begins at 7:00a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, July 12th and 13th at the Ventura Pierpont Beach, located along Seaward Avenue. Music festival and beer gardens open at 11:00a.m., located on the beach, and street festival hours are Sunday 10:00a.m.-8:00p.m. and Sunday 10:00a.m.-8:00p.m.
