24th Annual Dale Velzy Surf Classic and Luau to celebrate at Doheny

The Doheny Longboard Surfing Association’s (DLSA) annual Dale Velzy Surf Classic and Luau date has been selected.  The club selects event dates based on twenty plus years of predicting the optimum swell and tide opportunities. This year’s classic venue will be held on Saturday, September 21st, 2013 at the legendary Boneyard section of Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, California.

Open to everyone who loves waves and good times, the event honors one of surfing’s most famous surfboard shapers of all time, Dale Velzy, who passed away in 2005.  This is a special program for DLSA as the club has been holding this classic event for over two decades.

By design, the Velzy is for all who enjoy the same things that Dale enjoyed, mostly having fun with friends and family.  It is in that spirit that DLSA holds this annual event so that everyone can enjoy everything from the surf contest, the luau, Polynesian review and dancing under the stars at Doheny with a live band.  What could be better.

Mickey Munoz will be there!

“Dale Velzy was an important person to all of us in the club and this event is our yearly tribute to one of the true pioneers of the sport.” said Mark Gale, DLSA’s President.

This year we’re pleased to welcome Bud Light as our Main Sponsor of the event, and our contributing sponsors: Velzy Surfboards, Hobie Surf Shops, Coral Reef Wetsuits, Danai HydroSports, R-World Surfboards, and Custom Surfboards by Dave. Entertainment will be over the top this year with the return of the Eliminators Surf Band, Polynesian Dancers, awesome Luau food cooked on premise all day (Tri-Tip, Chicken, Kaluau Pork, Brown rice with Spam, Mac Salad, & Oriental Salad) and the raffle will be one not to miss with wetsuits, artwork, a $500 Hobie Surf Shop gift card, and at least 4 surfboards from the sponsors listed above to raffle.

Tandem.... my all time favorite to watch.

While supplies last, event shirts will be available, (Tees & Tank Tops) and Luau patrons will receive a commemorative Eco Tote Bag for future trips to the store or beach. It’s great fun for everyone and is sure to be an event you will not want to miss.
