The return of Cosmic Creek from Vissla: June 4 and 5

0

After a two-year hiatus, the 24th Annual Cosmic Creek Surf Festival + Free Concert returns to Salt Creek Beach at Dana Point June 4-5. It’s a community event paying homage to a more alternative and experimental era in surfing history, with a free Saturday night concert featuring Widowspeak, TONER and Waves with live music on the sand during the contest of The Electric Shrine.

The event will feature five divisions: Locals, Creators & Innovators, Pros, Womens and a Bodysurf expression session presented by DaFin. Pro and local entrants will draw cards prior to their round for priority draw selection. Vissla will be supplying competitors with the original Single + Twin Fin 70s and 80s options, meaning each round is truly a chance of the draw as to which board gets ridden. The Creators & Innovators division consists of local shapers from all over California, and they ride self-shaped boards inspired by the 70s and 80s. The Local and Pro divisions will ride original retro-crafts.

Local vendors will provide provisions at the event, including breakfast and lunch by The Schwack. Cosmic Creek will be a plastic-free event – organizers ask that you bring reusable water bottles to refill at water stations.

Cosmic Creek is open to the public and is a veritable gathering of legends, groms, artisans and storytellers. Over the years, Cosmic has grown into a soulful, popular and eclectic surf gathering; a celebration of heritage; a platform to exchange ideas about surfboards, music and art.

The 2019 contestants – always smiling.
