Spyder Surfboards joined forces with the City of Hermosa Beach and the Southern California Surf Industry again at the annual Spyder Surf Fest at Pier Plaza, Saturday April 6th. The festive day began with Mike Doyle being inducted into the Surfers’ Hall of Fame joining surfers like Greg Noll, Bing Copeland, Hap Jacobs, Donald Takayama, Dewey Weber, Leroy Grannis, Dale Velzy and more. The day was filled with local businesses, surfers, friends, various booths and lots of music.
Some of the industry’s biggest promotional teams and leaders, including Hurley, Billabong, Quiksilver, Volcom, Electric, Rip Curl, Roxy, Sanuk and Toms were involved in the event with giveaways, meet ‘n greets with star athletes and a lineup that included the band Tomorrow Tulips (ft. surfers like Alex Knost and Ford Archbold). The event also held a fashion show by Spyder Surf Women’s that modeled brands across the industry along an 18-foot catwalk.
The 15,000 people who attended the event left founder of Spyder Surf Shops, Dennis Jarvis, to say: “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.”
