The 30th Year Anniversary Spyder Surf Fest presented by Monster Energy Drink returns to the Hermosa Beach Pier Plaza on Saturday April 6th. In celebration of a significant milestone, as well as great success over the last five years, Spyder surf will be bringing the Legends of Surf Weekend together with the help of the City of Hermosa Beach and the Southern California Surf Industry.
“It’s hard to believe it has already been 30 years. We’d like to thank our partners, the City of Hermosa Beach and our friends of the industry for always supporting us and we attribute much of our success to our partnerships and personal relationships with them,” said Dennis Jarvis, founder, Spyder Surf Shops. “The South Bay has been our home and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with our family at the sixth annual Spyder Surf Fest and we’re looking forward to many more years to come.”
Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC) will jump start the weekend festivities off right with a Ladies of the Industry Night on Thursday, April 4th from 7pm-10pm at Spyder Surf Women’s at the Hermosa Pier Plaza. B4BC will have light drinks, appetizers and a fun shopping experience to celebrate women and girls with 100% of the proceeds from B4BC’s artisan made silk wrap and gemstone bracelets going to the B4BC Survivorship Fund for breast cancer survivors. In addition, Spyder Surf Shop will have their entire inventory of regularly priced items (excluding surfboards) 30% off.
The 8th Annual Surf Film Fest presented the Hermosa Beach Historical Society on Friday night April 5th from 7-10pm will be featuring the South Bay premiere of the new John John Florence biography, “Done.” It will be an exciting event as food, drinks, movies, live music and a silent auction contributed by Spyder Surf will take place at the Hermosa Beach pier to benefit the Hermosa Beach Historical Surfing Museum.
